Regulators assure the public that as the plant nears shutdown, staffing will be in place to make sure it is done safely

The plant provided $32M a year to the nearby town of Cortlandt

According to Astorino, the decision to close the nuclear power plant came without the state conducting a proper environmental review

After an inspection, one of the power plant's units was shown to have a number of failing bolts

County Executive Rob Astorino claims the law requires an environmental impact statement must be completed first

State Sen. Terrence Murphy questioned why local leaders were not contacted to discuss the closure

Local officials say they were blindsided by the announcement and are still looking for answers

The nuclear plant accounts for millions of dollars in the town’s local economy

While some do not want to see the plant go, others are happy to hear it may close soon
