Update: South Bend Ethanol Plant listed for auction


There are new developments in the ongoing controversy over the former New Energy Ethanol Plant in South Bend. The plant is now listed on an online auction. The plant started drawing attention after it closed when neighbors started experiencing flooding in their basements.

The city of South Bend arranged an agreement to keep one of the pumps running that alleviated the immediate flooding problems. However, some council members and neighbors are concerned about what will happen in the future.

Councilman Oliver Davis worries the plant will be auctioned off and dismantled. The plant is now listed for auction on Maynard's web site. It's listed as "New Energy Corp.-Entirety Sale."

Davis is concerned salvage groups may buy the plant at auction, dismantle the parts and leave neighbors once again with flooding.
