As long as there are spent fuel rods on the site, it cannot be redeveloped. In the meantime, Buchanan Mayor Theresa Knickerbocker wants a separate payment.

“All communities should be compensated for becoming a de facto storage facility,” she said.

The Hendrick Hudson school district receives 30 percent of its budget from the plant.

“This is a catastrophic financial calamity that we’re facing,” said Superintendent Joseph Hochreiter.
