The committee deferred discussion of the resolution extending the enterprise zone and the zoning for the proposed Ember Clear Power Plant to the end of the Executive Committee agenda.
The County Board agenda was discussed.
Reports from Committee Chairmen - none: due to the length of discussion on the power plant.
Report from County Administrator - McFadden discussed the proposed power plant project. He explained that the County Board will be asked to vote Tuesday night on an extension of the Springfield/Sangamon County Enterprise Zone, a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Ember Clear and zoning for the proposed power plant. The MOU is lengthly and has much language regarding the intent of the parties involved. However, there are really two main enforceable provisions; First, a two year window for construction to begin on the power plant. If construction does not begin, the enterprise zone expansion will be decertified. Second, there is a requirement for a second and final MOU that will contain much more detail on the project and requirements on what needs to be done for the project to move forward. The enterprise zone extension and MOU will also need the approval of the Springfield City Council. McFadden summarized some of the concerns that the local residents have in regards to the project. He explained how the County Board Chairman plans to handle testimony, given the expectation of a large number of speakers.
