Ada County Commissioner Says Fellow Leaders Ignoring Residents' Concerns On Dynamis Project

Dave Case
Ada County

For months, the debate over a proposed trash and tire burning facility at the Ada County landfill has escalated. 

A citizens group that opposes the Dynamis project has criticized Ada County Commissioners  Rick Yzaguirre and Sharon Ullman - arguing that the two aren’t listening to residents' concerns.

But this week, there’s a new voice speaking out on the garbage-fueled power plant.  That’s the third county commissioner, Dave Case. 

Until now, he's been very careful in what he's said about the project and his fellow commissioners. Case wants the County to hold a forum so the public can ask leaders about the Dynamis plant.  He also wants an independent engineering firm to review the company's application.  Case says he's become frustrated with his fellow commissioners.

We’ve also invited Commissioners Yzaguirre and Ullman to speak with us about the Dynamis proposal.  Ullman has declined.  Yzaguirre has not responded.  Dynamis officials are currently not commenting on the project.
