General Store at Lytton Springs
8573 FM 1854, Dale, Texas 78616

Signs are going up all over the Lockhart area about this weekend’s planned rally against the proposed 130 Environmental Park.

The Sunday afternoon event on April 23, 2017 will be held at the Historic General Store in Lytton Springs and will feature the latest news in the battle against the proposed garbage dump. Leading the fight, Caldwell County Commissioner Joe Roland. Marisa Perales, the Austin attorney representing the neighborhood group fighting the planned skyscraper of trash will detail the legal effort.

The rally will be held from 2-5 PM located in a field behind the historic storefront. The rally comes on the eve of a special evening session of the Caldwell County Commissioners on Monday Night. Two new County Commissioners are pushing for a host agreement with the controversial Green Group garbage company, reversing more than a year of county refusal to even negotiate with the trash company.

Opposition to the proposed dumpsite along 183 South of Austin includes a warning from the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality lawyer representing the public about Green’s Group credibility, the dump’s smell, and possible environmental damage to a sensitive aquifer.

Media interviews will be available.
