This week, the Taxpayers Won


The Solid Waste Authority late last year sold $800M in bonds to finance the construction of a waste-to-energy facility (aka “mass burn plant”) on Jog Road. This week, the 7 person selection committee gave the nod to Babcock and Wilcox to build and operate the plant. They were the low bidder at $667M (or $500M NPV if 20 years of operations and energy sales are considered), considerably less than competitors Covanat and Wheelabrator. The technical merits of the three proposals were very similar. Read the details on the TAB website: HERE

South Florida 912 was involved in the discussion when the plans to purchase a new landfill were scrapped in favor of this plant. See the related story HERE
