Group to explore NK’s green energy potential

The creation of an eight-member working group to study passive renewable energy options for town and school properties received the approval of the Town Council June 26.

The 4-0 vote, with Councilor Doreen Costa absent due to illness, is aimed at identifying potential revenue streams that do not place an additional burden on local taxpayers. Council President Richard Welch said that objective is particularly important in light of the town’s revenue shortfall for the past fiscal year.
