County revises decision on plants
Two days after voting to allow electricity-generating plants in light-industrial areas of the county, the Leavenworth County Commission voted to specify that only gas-fired electricity-generating plants would be allowed in areas zoned light industrial.
John Zoellner, director of planning and zoning for the county, said this law would take effect in August.
This move would not hamper Duke Energy North America, which is researching the possibility of constructing a $200 million natural-gas fired electricity-generating plant at 195th Street and Bauserman Road.
