There is plenty of heated discussion at the City Commission meeting tonight about the proposed Highwood coal plant. Some of the folks that got up to speak included Lawrence Rezentes (see GeeGuy’s post) and Great Falls’ very own Environmental Ranger Larry Kralj. I’ll admit that I’m not too smart about certain things, and public utilities ranks right up there at the top. All I know is that I get a monthly bill for electricity, gas, sewer, and trash, and I pay it. Beyond that, it’s all a mystery. Can anyone explain to me – using small words, and in a concise manner – exactly what is going on? And why it’s such a contentious issue?
