The article says that

Entergy has announced it is taking the first steps toward moving its spent fuel to dry-cask storage at the Vermont Yankee site by 2021, with plans to file with the state to build a second concrete pad.

This is good news that they will not delay the storage into dry casks far into the future.   This should have been part of their ongoing maintenance.
