2nd Meeting – 12 Nov 2009:
3rd Meeting – 16 Mar 2010:
Feel free to chime in with a comment; this battle over environmental health and public safety is not over by a long shot.
“What the [National Environment Protection Authority] NEPA [process] is not, is it’s not a vote. So the question was asked about ‘Are we cataloging where these comments come from?’ It’s not a vote. The Board of Commissioners, which will ultimately make a decision on this as far as whether to move forward or not, they could select an alternative that not one person supports; they could select an alternative that everybody supports. It’s simply not a vote and majority doesn’t win in this process. The Board of Commissioners will look at all the impacts, study the three alternatives that were looked at, and they’ll make a decision on what they think is best for Jackson County.”
