Re: “City sets 2030 goal for all renewable power” (Aug. 18 and Aug. 21, 2018) Really is this the best use of our Spokane City Council’s time and effort?
Breean Beggs and Ben Stuckart continue to pursue goals that are totally out of the scope of managing the City of Spokane.
To the best of my knowledge the City of Spokane has only the power generation from its highly inefficient waste-to-energy plant in Airway Heights. Where is this “renewable” energy supposed to come from? And at who’s expense?
This plan is an attempt to burden the citizens of Spokane and to fulfill the personal goals of a few environmentalist zealots. This action would undoubtedly increase the cost of energy for all including the poor and those on a fixed income.
I, for one, expect the Spokane City Council to stick to managing the city and to pursue environmental goals on their own time and expense, not at the expense of the citizens of Spokane.
