The possible closure of the Dresden Nuclear Station in 2021 was discussed by the Coal City School Board last Wednesday.

Superintendent Kent Bugg spoke with WCSJ about the latest happenings.

He said the school board also discussed the search for a new superintendent and how that coincides with Dresden.

Bugg said the Dresden Station currently supports 804 direct jobs and 865 indirect jobs.

Meanwhile, Nancy Norton with the Grundy Economic Development Council was on WCSJ last week and was asked when legislation could possibly be passed that would assist Dresden.

Dresden Station pays about $23 million annually in property taxes to fund seven different taxing districts.
