GREEN BAY – The Green Bay City Council has scheduled a closed session for Monday to discuss if it will appeal a decision overturning its revocation of a permit for a controversial waste-to-energy plant.

Earlier this week, a state appeals court ruled the city acted improperly when it revoked the conditional use permit for a facility on Hurlbut Street being built by the Oneida Seven Generations Corp.

The council normally meets on Tuesday, but moved its meeting up a day due to Tuesday’s elections.

The agenda, released Friday, notes the council plans to meet as a committee of the whole in closed session to discuss the suit. The city council could appeal the decision to the Wisconsin Supreme Court. However, tribal members have since voted to dissolve the Oneida Seven Generations Corp. and without an active project, it’s unclear what practical impact a possible reversal by the high court would have.

Also at Monday’s meeting, the council will consider a conditional use permit for a proposed daytime homeless resource center.
