BRATTLEBORO, Vt. (AP) - Vermont’s Nuclear Decommissioning Citizens Advisory Panel meets this week to look at a new proposal to sell the closed Vermont Yankee nuclear plant.

It’s a makeup meeting for one that had been set for Nov. 17, but was put off after the Nov. 8 announcement that the plant would be sold to NorthStar Group Services Inc. of New York City. That company says it believes it can decommission Vermont Yankee for less than what’s in the plant’s decommissioning fund.

Thursday’s meeting from 6 to 9 p.m. at the Brattleboro Area Middle School is expected to feature representatives from the plant’s current owner, Entergy Corp., and from NorthStar talking about the proposed sale.
