[NEWS] Gypsum, Colorado Biomass Owners Send $186,000 Bill to Town
– by Pam Boyd, April 2, 2017, Vail Daily
Clearwater Ventures and Eagle Valley Clean Energy have submitted a bill for $186,000 to the town of Gypsum for costs associated with a condemnation action that was struck down by a district court judge.
In an order issued earlier this month, Eagle County District Court Judge Frederick Gannett ruled that the town of Gypsum failed to follow its own regulations when it launched a condemnation action against Clearwater Ventures LLC, the owner of the property where the Eagle Valley Clean Energy biomass plant is located.
Gannett’s order voided the town’s condemnation action stating, Gypsum “failed to meet the procedural requisites of public notice required … and acted arbitrarily and took action beyond their authority.”
