La Pine city council members have rejected an appeal aimed at stopping a biomass project in their city.  Opponents are complaining the $75-million power project will create too much noise and traffic, and will not use union labor. “The labor unions are employing a tactic the last few years if a project is of major size that is going to be built will not use a union contractor, they will oppose the project through the land use system.” La Pine Interim City Manager Rick Allen says the union can still appeal to the State Land Use Board of Appeals. The Oregon Department of Environmental quality has okayed the air quality permit for the plant. The plant is projected to generate almost 25-megawatts of electricity through burning woody forest debris. The plant's owner hopes to start construction in the spring and it could take 15-months to build. The plant will employ 25-full time employees.
