After hearing about the news story which aired on GlobalTV (I believe) which all but came right out and said that the Covanta / Green Island Energy power plant project is finished here in Gold River, I decided to ask Mayor Anderson for more information.
If you read the Resident Spotlight this week, you’ll know that he touched on this subject a bit, and stated that the news reports were inaccurate, and that he encourages Gold River residents to ask Council for correct and up to date information.
Here is what Craig told me today:
“After talking with Thomas Lyons this past Tuesday he said, and I quote, ‘Covanta is committed to having a power project in Gold River and fully expect to win the Request for Proposal from Metro Vancouver.’ “
Mayor Anderson also stated that Council will be meeting with Covanta / Green Island Energy on Tuesday January 26th to be fully updated and briefed.
