Exelon to hold annual community meeting


Clinton - The decision to shut down two plants for Exelon could come later this year.


However, on Friday night Exelon will hold their annual community information meeting. The event will provide community members an opportunity to learn more about nuclear power and the Clinton Power station. Community members are welcome to attend.


The annual meeting will be held at 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. at Clinton's training facility located at 8401 Power Road in Clinton.  


Exelon says they may close two of their plants in the near future. The company operates the Clinton Nuclear Plant, putting 700 employees at risk of losing their job. State Representative Bill Mitchell, (R) Forsyth, confirmed that the Clinton Power Plant is one of the plants being considered for possible closure, along with a plant in the Quad Cities.


"Exelon is committed to this community," said Clinton Station Site Vice President Keith Taber. "We consider it our responsibility to listen to our neighbors, answer their questions and offer them the opportunity to learn more about nuclear energy. This is just one of many ways we reach out to our local community."
