The News That Matters about the Nuclear Industry

SCE and G blocks Fairfield County property tax assessors at failed nuclear reactor site

Fairfield County is weighing whether to sue utility SCE&G over the shutdown of a project to build to two nuclear reactors in Jenkinsville after the utility blocked county officials from assessing improvements at the site.

SCE&G shut down the nuclear project six months ago after the projected costs of building the two reactors soared from $11 billion to $14 billion to $20 billion. The shutdown put an estimated 5,000 people out of work.

Now, officials in the small rural county north of Columbia want to collect property taxes on the incomplete reactors and the land they sit on.

“They built a small city out there,” county administrator Jason Taylor said. “And that small city should be taxed.”

But that process got off to a rocky start when SCE&G last month allowed a county tax assessor access to the site on a tour bus, but didn’t let him and his team off to take measurements or other calculations needed.

“It was a ride-around,” Taylor said. “They didn’t let us do a meaningful assessment.”…….http://www.thestate.com/news/local/article198017114.html
