City of Sequim councilors recently formed a subcommittee to create a Sequim forum on the addition of a wood-burning cogeneration plant being built at the Nippon Paper Industries’ paper mill in Port Angeles.
The city has received complaints about the new plant and how it might affect Sequim’s air quality.
The Port Angeles City Council invited the Sequim council to participate in their upcoming discussion on the plant’s pros and cons at 6 p.m. Tuesday, April 3, in Port Angeles City Hall, 321 E. Fifth St. Port Angeles’ council plans to hold a forum on the pros and cons of biomass, too. City Manager Steve Burkett said the council is still deciding on if it will participate with Port Angeles.
