On Feb. 20, the Grand Haven BLP board voted to authorize a notice of intent to issue utility revenue bonds to pay for several capital projects associated with the closure and demolition of the Sims Generating Station, the remediation and restoration of the Harbor Island site, reconstruction of substations and improvements to the interconnection to the grid, supporting equipment for metering and the downtown snowmelt system, construction of a non-generation service facility on that site, and, potentially, construction of limited natural gas-fired electrical generating capacity. The notice must also be approved by City Council.
