Mayor Steve Bach will have to wait until next year to get responses from Colorado Springs Utilities to a long list of questions about the Martin Drake Power Plant downtown.
Bach had given Utilities CEO Jerry Forte a Christmas Eve deadline to answer 18 questions about the power plant, which city officials are talking about decommissioning.
But Friday, Forte sent Bach an email stating he is working on responses but won’t be able to meet his deadline.
“Because of the number and complexity of the questions, I will not be able to complete this effort by the date you requested. I plan on having something to you during the first week in January,” Forte said in the email.
“Please let me know if you would like to meet in the interim.”
