Plan to burn more garbage downtown gets delayed again


It will be at least several more months — and perhaps over a year — before the city of Minneapolis makes a final decision on a proposal to allow Hennepin County to burn more garbage at its downtown incinerator.

The city’s Zoning and Planning Committee today voted to delay any decision on the increased burning until Hennepin County and Covanta Energy finish their environmental review process with the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency.

That review could be done as early as this spring, or could last even longer if the state decides the project needs a more thorough review.
