AES Offers Tax Benefit to Hull, Mass. Residents

The Boston Globe  today reports on the billboard paid for by LNG opposition group Save the Brewsters. The billboard reads “The Harbor Islands Are Not for Sale” and will remain in place for a month. AES Inc. proposes to lease Outer Brewster Island and build an LNG terminal there, resulting in approximately $3.5 million in property taxes paid to Hull. Doing so would involve removing the island from the state park system; a Legislative committee hearing on the necessary bill will take place March 8. Save the Brewsters spokeswoman Lory Newmyer hopes the Hull selectmen will decide on the project before that date.
