New Ada County Commissioner Dave Case on Friday got his first chance to ask questions of Dynamis employees about the countys public/private partnership with the Eagle-based company to build a waste-to-energy facility at the county landfill.
More than 70 people attended the open meeting at the Ada County Courthouse.
Case had a lengthy list of questions pertaining to the countys contract with Dynamis, which was initially signed two years ago. After learning the contract is out of compliance, the company has not repaid the $2 million it owes the county, it has not started construction and it does not have a building permit, Case decided to take action.
I would move to terminate all contracts and franchise agreements with Dynamis regarding the proposed waste-to-energy project based up based upon lack of performance and to demand payment of the $2 million within 90 days, Case said.
Fellow Commissioners Rick Yzaguirre and Sharon Ullman voted against the motion.
Yzaguirre said he is willing to wait and see if Dynamis gets its air quality permit from DEQ.
If they dont, its all going to go away and it will be a good learning experience, Yzaguirre said. I think the next six months is going to tell us a lot.
