The city of Adams is hoping to answer questions about a new waste treatment facility. Members of the city council say the facility will bring in new environmentally friendly technology and more than 200 jobs to the area, but some are saying the cost to tax payers will be too great.

Green technology company, Geits has current plans to build the waste treatment facility and future plans to build a wind turbine manufacturing facility. Still many say they are hesitant, fearing it will cost the city tax payers $22 million over the next 25 years. But, the city administrator says that's not the case and any cost to the city will be made up.

"There will be an opportunity for everybody to learn a lot more about the project and how it has changed over time, because it has changed shape for the original development agreement,” explained city Administrator Bill Ellisor.

Representatives for the company and members of the city council will address the public's concerns at a meeting at the Adams Community Center this Wednesday, Feb. 5 at 6.

Ellisor says the new development agreement between the city and Geits will be presented.
