Gainesville City Commission sues to gain controlling interest of biomass power plant [From the web]



GAINESVILLE, FL , Dec. 21, 2012 (Local News) -

At arbitration, the city would seek to require GREC to fulfill the contractual obligation to give the city an opportunity to make an offer to purchase a controlling interest in the plant.
