FW: May 8 Town Board meeting/ Brookhaven Landfill to Expand?
Don't just complain at home – tell your town officials how much you love the smell of the landfill!
Tired of being dumped on? Tired of smelling garbage? Sick of blowing ash? Speak out! Speak up! Join the Brookhaven Community Coalition in opposition to another landfill expansion.
Brookhaven Supervisor Mark Lesko shocked everyone by proposing an expansion of the town's biggest monster – the landfill. This proposal comes only mere months after the Supervisor agreed to work with community members on a plan to take the needed steps to close the landfill. For decades, the surrounding community has been plagued with dust, odors, and litter emanating from the ever-growing dump. The community has been promised several times that the end of life was near, yet the closure date is continually being pushed back. Enough is enough! If everyone in the town benefits from the revenue the landfill generates, why doesn't everyone share the burden?
All community members are needed to join us at the Brookhaven Town Public Hearing on Tuesday, May 8. We need a closure plan, not another expansion.
When:Tuesday, May 8, 2012, 5:00pm Where:Brookhaven Town Hall, One Independence Hill, Farmingville, NY
BCC members, stakeholders, and affected residents are all encouraged to attend.
Thank you for joining us. We hope to see you there!
