Galion Mayor Tom O'Leary has vetoed a resolution city council passed four-to-two last week, to ask the Ohio Attorney General's office investigate the city's participation in the Prairie State Energy Campus in southern Illinois. The resolution questioned whether Prairie State provided full and accurate information to Galion, before the thirty-year contract was approved. O'Leary says this agreement has not, and will not, hurt the city's finances, nor those of 59 other Ohio cities getting electricity from Prairie State. O'Leary says Galion's electric rates are the result of the local structure, not Prairie State. If Galion City Council tries to override the mayor's veto, it would need five "yes" votes. One member was absent from last week's vote, and O'Leary says that councilman would vote "no", so he believes his veto will stand.
