KEENE, N.H. — City staff will have 90 days to complete a report on the Vermont Yankee nuclear power plant on whether the city should sign a letter of concern.

At a meeting of the municipal services, facilities and infrastructure committee Wednesday, more than 40 people packed city hall to discuss the implications of Keene signing off on a letter put forward by the Vermont-based Safe and Green Campaign.

The letter is “an opportunity for the city council to have a seat at the table for the discussion of the decommissioning of the Vermont Yankee nuclear power plant,” said Kendra Ulrich, a coordinator for Safe and Green. “It serves as a way for city councils and selectboards in the tri-state area of New Hampshire, Vermont and Massachusetts to express their concern for the aging plant.”
