Officials To Discuss Options Regarding Power Station Closure

 

Members of the response team formed in the wake of the news about the Kewaunee Power Station closure are set to meet Thursday.  

Kewaunee Mayor John Blaha says when Dominion announced October 22 that the nuclear power plant would be closing next year it sent a "definite shock" to the community.

"Not just to the city of Kewaunee but to Kewaunee County and I think basically the state of Wisconsin," says Blaha.

Blaha says because of the highly-specialized nature of the jobs at the plant, it's likely some employees will leave the community to find similar positions elsewhere.

Some have questioned Dominion officials telling employees the news the same day they made the announcement to the media, but Blaha says there's never a good time to tell people they're losing their jobs.

Blaha says the city of Kewaunee receives an annual payment of around $18,000 from Dominion for fire protection. He says the future of that payment is now in doubt.

Thursday afternoon's meeting will be held in Luxemburg.
