Harrisburg has been offered $45 million in CASH for the Authority’s incinerator, which has saddled Harrisburg and Dauphin County with $280 million worth of debt. Sadly, the incinerator is probably not worth anywhere near the amount owed. The problem being the offer from Lancaster County Solid Waste Management Authority is only about 16 percent of the $280 million debt. This still leaves Harrisburg and Dauphin County on the hook for $235 million!
Looks like this problem will not go away easily! Hopefully LT is right and other entities will be interested in buying the incinerator, for considerably more money!
