Ada County Commissioners, Dynamis terminate contract for waste-to-energy plant
The Board of Ada County Commissioners and Dynamis Energy, LLC have jointly announced termination of all agreements regarding a waste-to-energy gasification plant at the Ada County Hidden Hollow Landfill, according to a news release sent from the Ada County Commissioners’ Office.
The Commissioners and Dynamis representatives have carefully reviewed comments from the City of Boise and the City of Meridian, as well as the financial impacts and advisability of proceeding with the project. The termination comes as a result of a variety of factors concerning the project, the release said.
“Although this was a tough decision to make, we feel it is in the best interest of our constituents,” said Ada County Commission Chairman Dave Case. “This decision will help the County move forward in a positive direction with our continued commitment for greater transparency and collaboration.”
“Dynamis is disappointed that the schedule no longer allows for the project to proceed. We wish the Ada County Commissioners success with their municipal solid waste and renewable energy strategies,” said C. Lloyd Mahaffey, Chairman and CEO, Dynamis Energy, LLC.
The termination of this project includes an agreement from both sides to release each other from all claims. The mutual release agreement will be presented to the Board of Commissioners to be signed on Tuesday, February 19th at 9:00 a.m., in an Open Business meeting to be held at the Ada County Courthouse, in the first floor Public Hearing Room.
