The Buffalo News - - LOCAL NEWS -

The Tonawanda Town Board will hold a pub­lic hear­ing to­day on its le­gal ef­fort to take over the shut­tered Huntley Gen­er­at­ing Sta­tion.

The board could vote af­ter­ward to be­gin em­i­nent do­main pro­ceed­ings against NRG En­ergy, owner of the Huntley Sta­tion, al­though the board has de­layed vot­ing in the past and could wait again un­til its April 22 meet­ing.

Huntley closed in 2016 but NRG still pro­vides un­treated wa­ter to lo­cal in­dus­trial cus­tomers. Tonawanda of­fi­cials want to en­sure that con­tin­ues and to take con­trol of ev­ery­thing ex­cept the site’s fly ash land­fill.

The Town Board held a pub­lic hear­ing in De­cem­ber but did not taken fur­ther ac­tion in or­der to give NRG more time to sell the prop­erty. – Stephen T. Wat­son
