Payette — Officials for Alternate Energy Holdings, Inc., the nuclear power plant company that has shown an interest in Payette County, say they are still interested in building the facility and are now over the largest hurdle.

Dan Hamilton, spokesman for the company, said the approval to rezone the acreage in Big Willow in Payette County from agricultural to industrial is always the worst part of the process.

    Well it is interesting that they say that MidAmerica was looking at this site. All of the physical work that they did was on a site about seven miles away. This comment seems like an effort to try and associate themselves legitimate company. I guess some people will believe anything they read without checking the facts for themselves. So don’t believe me check the facts for yourself and then decide if our elected officials are representing the best interest of the county or not.

    The study may start now and will take two years to complete. AEHI could not go any further in the process because of the legal battles in court. Now that that is all coming to an end, the company can move forward and begin the study.

    So it's going to take two more years? Or are you saying that the study will use information from the last couple of years?
