A huge protest rally is being held in Lytton Springs this month as a way for residents to send a loud message to stop the proposed Green Group garbage dump outside of Lockhart.
In recent weeks, the County Judge and recently elected Commissioners have moved quickly to cut a financial deal with Green Group. This after their predecessors spent $93,000 in legal fees to fight the landfill. Maybe they should read the letter sent by the Public Watchdog for the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality.
“130 Environmental Park provided false or misleading information to the Executive Director,” writes Public Interest Attorney Aaron Tucker, “The potential for aquifer contamination is a serious concern.”
More than 100 people live within a mile of the proposed 130 Environmental Park site. The Public Interest Counsel wants more protections against noise and nuisance odors.
“The proposed location increases the risk of a washout of waste and contamination of water resources as well nuisance conditions,” says Tucker.
Caldwell County Commissioner Joe Roland will headline the event, scheduled on April 23, from 1 – 4 pm at the Lytton Springs Park. The following evening the Caldwell County Commissioners will hold a special evening meeting to discuss the deal with Green Group. Roland is a vocal opponent of any deal with Green Group, a company with a troubled history.
“It is time for the rest of Caldwell County to step up and help these folks fight;” says Wayne Dolcefino, President of Dolcefino Consulting. “Would you want to live next to this tower of trash run by these guys? Is it worth taking their money to sell out your neighbors? Of course not.”
Dolcefino’s Investigative Communications firm helped expose secret meetings in the fight against Green Group in Waller County.
The community rally is scheduled at Lytton Springs Park between 1 and 4 pm, Sunday April 23rd.
