Plant Vogtle

Plant Vogtle

Only one local resident attended a town hall hosted by city council and officials last week to announce a proposed, long-range plan for Thomaston to address more than $223 million in debt for the development of phases three and four of nuclear Plant Vogtle.

A previous administration committed Thomaston’s participation in the project which, in 2013, was projected to cost $14 billion. Estimates to complete construction now exceed $30 billion.

“You have to build the house, and cost of the house has increased,” Mayor Pro Tempore Doug Head commented. “You could ignore it and let someone else worry about it, like the national debt, or soften the eventual impact for our children and grandchildren.”
