Re: E-M:/ Consumers Energy requests tax break on new plant

So it is my understanding the Trustees unanimously approved a 12 year 50% IFT at the meeting Monday night.

Why should Hampton Township give any tax breaks?  Is Consumers Energy going someplace else if they don't get their way?  Let the township reconsider the tax break if Consumers reconsiders a cleaner power plant other than coal-fired.

Consumers Energy is seeking a tax break on a new $2 billion-plus coal-fired power plant planned for its Karn-Weadock generating complex in Hampton Township.

But even with the abatement - scheduled to be discussed at 4 p.m. Monday by the Hampton Township Board of Trustees - the utility will pay an estimated $10 million in additional annual property taxes to the township and other Bay County taxing units, said Consumers spokesman Kelly Farr.
