Entergy's Indian Point Energy Center provided $32M a year to the town of Cortlandt. Now, the question remains, how will the town operate once the power plant closes for good in four years?

State and local leaders came together on Thursday to share their ideas and concerns with the community.

"So we're going to work together to look at the properties that are currently vacant, valuable, or could be re-used or re-zoned to bring in economics to offset the loss of revenue we're going to have in a few years," said Linda Puglisi, the Cortlandt Town Supervisor.

Other topics at the meeting included labor; Indian Point employs over 1,000 people and State Senator Terrence Murphy wants to make sure their jobs are relocated.

"They need to be able to get information and go home and let their wife know and their kids know, we're out of here or we're staying," Murphy said.
