BRATTLEBORO, Vt. (AP) - A state panel reviewing the planned decommissioning of the Vermont Yankee nuclear plant has postponed an upcoming meeting for two weeks.

The Nuclear Decommissioning Citizens Advisory Panel had been set to meet this Thursday. But given last week’s announcement of a plan to sell the closed reactor, the session was pushed back to Dec. 1. It will be from 6 to 9 p.m. at Brattleboro Area Middle School.

Tony Leshinskie (“le-SHIN-skee”), nuclear engineer with the Vermont Public Service Department, says Dec. 1 was the soonest executives from both current plant owner Entergy Corp. and proposed buyer NorthStar Group Services Inc., could attend.

He says it was decided it would be good to get those executives to the next meeting to answer questions about the sale.
