Appeal of waste permit decision up for discussion Monday

GREEN BAY, WI (WTAQ) - A closed session on Monday will be used to discuss whether the city of Green Bay will appeal a decision overturning the revocation of a controversial waste-to-energy plant's conditional use permit.

The Third District Court of Appeals earlier this week ruled the city overstepped its bounds when it stripped the permit for the facility on the east side being built by the Oneida Seven Generations Corporation.

City leaders moved up its meeting due to the spring election on Tuesday.

According to the Green Bay City Council agenda released Friday, the council plans to meet as a committee of the whole in closed session to talk about the suit. City leaders could appeal the decision to the Wisconsin Supreme Court.

Tribal members, however, have since voted to dissolve the OSGC. So without an active project, it's unclear what impact a possible reversal by the state Supreme Court would have.
