The Town Board voted unanimously last week to oppose the proposed waste-to-energy incinerator in the neighboring town of Romulus.
Citing its “negative impact on the environment,” the motion was made by board member Richard Peterson and seconded by Todd Horton at Tuesday’s board meeting.
The proposed $365 million facility was formally introduced to the Romulus Planning Board on Monday, Dec. 4. It is proposed by Circular EnerG LLC of Rochester for a 48-acre parcel on the former Seneca Army Depot. The land is owned by Flaum Management and managed by Seneca Depot LLC.
Even though no public comment was allowed, about 250 people attended the Romulus Planning Board meeting Monday, which included the informational session on the project. The project needs Planning Board site plan approval and a special-use permit, as well as state and federal approvals.
