Since 2008, the revenue from the Rivesville Power Plant has steadily declined.
Last year, with the plant’s closure, it dried up almost entirely.
The Rivesville Town Council met Tuesday evening to discuss ways to make up at least part of that revenue and keep the town running, as well as getting the town’s water system into tip-top order.
According to a chart prepared by Mayor Jim Hershman, in the 2010-11 fiscal year, the town received about $85,000 in public utilities from the plant, a slow decline from $93,000 in 2008-09. In the 2011-12 fiscal year, that sum plummeted to $19,000.
