HOLLAND, MI (WHTC) - Before last night’s Holland City Council meeting could begin in earnest, a recommendation by the BPW board to approve the construction of a new electrical generating plant fueled by natural gas was pulled from the agenda. Council members want to discuss the matter further with utility officials before making any decision. The new 114-megawatt facility would be built separately from the DeYoung coal-fired plant. Meanwhile, it will cost more to be caught drinking and driving within the Holland City Limits. Council members voted 7-2 last night to approve ordinance amendments that would place as much as 750 dollars in fines and costs for those motorists convicted of being inebriated behind the wheel. Proponents say that it would not only help defray expenses in prosecuting these cases, but could serve as a deterrent for drunken driving.
