Effort under way to raise awareness of Covanta's plan to bring NYC garbage into the Falls

(Continued)

Niagara Gazette — James Regan, a Covanta spokesman, said the company went above and beyond the required measures for the environmental justice policy, publishing notice of the meeting twice and collecting all related documents on a website.

“We want residents to be informed about the project,” he said.

Witryol’s characterization of the public notice and materials for the meeting are unfair, added Regan.

“Everything in that session was factual in nature,” he explained.

Included on the website detailing the project are a telephone number (716-278-8520) and email address (dhanna@covantaenergy.com) where residents can submit questions and concerns. 

Regan said the company will gladly answer any questions residents might have and the company encourages them to submit any concerns they may have.

“We’re not trying to hide here,” Regan said.

Yes. Items should be taxed like they are everywhere else.
No, the indian reservations are sovereign land and they are selling them on their land.
Not up to me. Native Americans decide the rules on their land.
Don't care. Smoking isn't good for you.
