Plymouth: Selectmen Demand Town’s Due from Entergy

Plymouth selectmen agreed to send a letter to Entergy Corporation, owner of the Pilgrim Nuclear Power Plant, demanding the company pay a $295,000 fee to cover costs of emergency preparedness. The annual payment was due four months ago. Entergy has offered to pay $240,000. Ten towns comprise the emergency evacuation zone. All 10 receive payments of relative value from Entergy. Plymouth argues that, as the host town, it has greater expenses than the other towns.
