GREEN BAY, WI (WTAQ) - A state appeals court ruled Tuesday the city of Green Bay overstepped its authority when it revoked a conditional use permit for a controversial energy plant backed by a company owned by the Oneida Tribe.

Oneida Seven Generations and its subsidiary, Green Bay Renewable Energy, received a permit for a waste-to-energy facility on Hurlbut Street. On March 1, 2011, the City Council approved a conditional use permit.

In August, the city granted a building permit. But after opposition to the plant grew, the city revoked the conditional use permit on Oct. 16, 2012.
