Earlier this month, the Board of Light & Power sent a recommendation to the Grand Haven City Council for a bond proposal that would not only pay for the demolition of the Sims power plant and for environmental remediation on Harbor Island, but would also be used to pay for the construction of a peaking plant.

The Grand Haven Tribune previously reported that a letter signed by 11 area business people was sent to the City Council highlighting some concerns they had about the bond proposal. With the council expected to take a vote on the bond proposal next month, we decided to reach out to them for comment.

Wow! Council member Cummins provides excellent, thoughtful comments and acknowledgement of community concerns with the reckless rush to build an unnecessary peaker power plant and saddle rate payers for decades.

Thanks, Grand Haven Tribune for putting these questions out to the mayor and council members.
