City's Harsh Description of Plant Stays on Ballot

January 10, 2002|From Times Staff Reports

An appeals court has sided with Huntington Beach in its battle with a power company over the language used to describe the AES power plant in a March ballot measure.

The ballot measure, if approved, would impose a 5% utility tax on the AES plant. The ballot measure included the lines: "The AES plant is ugly, pollutes our air, and our ocean" and "The AES plant has been a blight on Huntington Beach for over 40 years."

An appellate court on Tuesday allowed the language to stay.
