Amherst MA selectboard: close Vermont Yankee
Posted (Tom Wyatt) on 21-04-2011

Amherst officials are calling for the decommissioning of Vermont Yankee nuclear power plant and decontaminating the Vernon, Vt., site by next March. Acting on a citizens resolution submitted by Thomas Lindeman of Spencer Drive and Richard Stein of Berkshire Terrace, the Select Board Wednesday voted unanimously in favor of joining 51 other communities that are formally opposing the Nuclear Regulatory Commission’s 20-year license extension of the plant.
