MORRISTOWN, Ind. (AP) — Several officials of a central Indiana town where a $500 million power plant's been proposed say they were impressed with another of the company's plants during a trip to Texas.
Many residents in the Shelby County town of Morristown are fighting the proposal from Nebraska-based Tenaska to build the natural gas-fueled plant, saying they're worried about its possible impact on water well levels, air quality and added noise.
The Daily Reporter and The Shelbyville News report town and county officials who made the company-paid trip told Morristown Chamber of Commerce members on Tuesday that the Texas plant was quiet and local leaders there had no complaints.
Tenaska executive Helen Manroe says the company hasn't decided yet whether to build the plant in the town about 20 miles east of Indianapolis.
