The Gainesville City Commission meets Wednesday at 5 p.m. to continue discussions on whether to attempt to purchase the biomass power plant.

Under the city’s 30-year contract to purchase all power from the plant, Gainesville has a 60-day window to make an offer on the plant after the Gainesville Renewable Energy Center ownership informs the city a potential sale is in the works. GREC provided the city with that notification in August. The city’s 60-day window closes on Oct. 22.
