The City Council in special meeting tonight (Tuesday) is scheduled to take up Mayor Bill Finch’s proposal for construction of a solar park on the old municipal dump in Seaside Park. The proposal required approval from the Parks Commission that first rejected it unanimously and then approved it unanimously two weeks later in a controversial revote. The city’s legislative body will take up the 20-year lease with United Illuminating.
