BOISE, Idaho (AP) -- Ada County commissioners are seeking the return of $2 million from a company it hired to design a waste-to-energy plant.
The Idaho Statesman reports the three commissioners voted unanimously Wednesday to exercise the contract clause requiring Dynamis to return the money given it in 2010 to design a 22-megawat garbage gasifier.
Dynamis plans to build, own and operate the plant. Once the design was complete, it was supposed to buy back its design plans for $2 million.
Last week, a citizens group sued the county, claiming the $2 million amounts to a loan and the county is forbidden to loan money to businesses.
No Dynamis representatives were present at the commission meeting.
The company is trying to win an emissions permit from Idaho environmental regulators.
