Prattsburgh sets special Ecogen info session

Prattsburgh, NY – A special meeting will be held at 7 p.m. Tuesday by the Prattsburgh town board to supply information on a current lawsuit between the town and developer Ecogen.
The two sides are at odds over a proposal by Ecogen to set up 16 turbines in the town.
Town Supervisor Al Wordingham said the town’s attorney in the lawsuit, Ed Hourihan, will attend the meeting to discuss the cost and the status of the lawsuit.
The matter is before the state Supreme Court Justice John Ark, who told the parties in September he was ready to rule, but urged them to reach an out-of-court settlement.
Ark also asked former Prattsburgh officials to explain their involvement with Ecogen last December.
Last week, Wordingham told the town board a face-to-face meeting was being arranged between a representative of Ecogen’s parent company, Pattern Energy, Prattsburgh, and Italy Town Supervisor Brad Jones.
The Town of Italy also is battling Ecogen in court over a proposed 18-turbine wind farm there.
