Residents Express Outrage During Cabbot-Koppers Super-Fund Meeting
Residents who live near the Cabot-Koppers Super-fund site are outraged a group that received funding by the federal environmental protection agency is trying to help residents form questions about the cleanup plan.
Gainesville resident Sandra Watts-Kennedy says she received a notice in the mail about tonight's meeting and is frustrated the group "protect gainesville citizens" is trying to put together residents questions.
Kennedy believes that people should be speak what's really on their minds without a group telling what they should say to the EPA.
Kennedy said "any of us are perfectly capable in doing so on our own its kind of dis respectful of people's experiences and heartaches and the stress that's been going on for so long."
The meeting began at 5:30 tonight and will last until 7:00 and is taking place at santa fe downtown community campus on 6th street, in the innovation and economic development center.
The EPA will hold a meeting at the Stephon Foster Elementary school at 6:00 PM.
