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

GAINESVILLE, FL, Dec. 21, 2012 (Local News) - The City Commission on Thursday unanimously voted to file for arbitration against the Gainesville Renewable Energy Center, saying that the late 2011 sale of a 40 percent stake in the biomass plant constituted a control of ownership that should have triggered the city's contractual right of first refusal to make an offer to buy.
