Once on the list of “projects underway, in the works, awaiting completion, etc.” a garbage to energy plant in Riverton, Wyoming has joined the list of failed projects for Dynamis–the outfit with a 30 year contract and $2 million in Ada tax money.
Seems like any news about Dynamis and its principals is bad these days. In Wyoming the STAR TRIBUNE posted a story saying the firm approached local officials with a proposal to build a project similar to the one in the planning stage here in Ada.
Fremont County Commissioner Travis Becker said the county had questions concerning potential costs of the Riverton project and the actual amount of waste that processed by the plant. Becker previously told the GUARDIAN the county wouldn’t “give away” its garbage fuel to Dynamis.
The county’s solid waste district researched how much it costs the county to dispose of waste — an important step in negotiating garbage sale values with Dynamis — and decided the project “wasn’t in their best interest,” according to Becker.
Two of the current Ada Commishes are currently under investigation over the local Dynamis project. The deal is plagued with allegations of open meeting violations, improper bid procedures, and false information being offered for the public record.
