Following up on my earlier posting about AmerenUE’s proposed coal ash landfill on the Missouri River floodplain (upriver from the St. Louis drinking water supply), I’m forwarding to you this e-mail I received:

DON’T MISS ACT 3 OF THE COAL ASH LANDFILL HEARING SAGA

We need to pack the house again to show our concern.

Load up the car and travel to Union on July 20th for hearing #3.  Your support has taken us this far but we need you to go the distance with us. Just showing up in numbers sends a powerful message.  The landfill zoning amendment is one of several issues on the P&Z agenda which can be found at http://www.franklinmo.org.

PLANNING AND ZONING MEETING

DATE: Tues, JULY 20th

TIME: 7:00 pm

WHERE: Franklin County Government Center

400 E. Locust Union MO 63084

Goal: withdraw proposed zoning amendment, form Advisory Group to study options, protect our communities from toxic contamination.  

What to Expect:  We’ve been surprised by the county process twice (on June 15 and July 6) so can’t make any promises but expect brief comments concerning the proposed amendment will be heard by the commissioners.  We recommend reading the actual proposed zoning amendment by visiting http://www.leomo.info.  Look for the amendment link in the sidebar.

If you absolutely, positively cannot make it but want to voice concern, please send comments and contact info to:   CoalWasteLandfillLetters@gmail.com
