Vote continued again for Black Hills Station 5 and 6

PUEBLO, Colo. - Pueblo City Council once again continued the vote on Black Hills Energy Station 5 and 6 Monday night. 

Council was supposed to vote to decide whether the plant should be named a historical landmark.

But there was concern and debate amongst members about liability and if the city needed to take possession of the property, leading council to delay the vote again. 

“Black Hills has said, you know, that they’re going to sue us whether we continue it or whether we landmark it.  But I think we feel that that we will take the risk that just by continuing it we’ve not made a decision about land marking it," City Council president Steve Nawrocki said. 

The vote will be back in front of council in about two months on Oct. 23.
