I guess there was a MDEQ/Dow meeting Wednesday...

...but nobody bothered to show up. Ho-hum! My news feed source isn't very reliable because it didn't show up until this morning. TV12's Matt Franklin covered the informational meeting in Bay City. Read about it and view the television report: DEQ meets on dioxins. Would have caught it sooner but I seldom watch local news on ABC because their local coverage usually is mostly about the Flint area. After viewing the video clip I've surmised the attendees consisted of DEQ, Dow, and Lonetree council.

I don't recall seeing publication of the three meetings anywhere except Midland Daily News this time around. Could it be DEQ doesn't really want anybody attending these meetings any more? What happened to their goal to spread the word broadly? Ms. Howe from the Hazardous Waste group of DEQ didn't even send out notices this time... at least I didn't receive a notice from her.

For your information... next week brings us two meetings... one in Saginaw and one in Midland.

  • Wednesday, August 24, 6:30-8:30pm, Holiday Inn,1500 West Wackerly Street, Midland
  • Thursday, August 25, 6:30-8:30pm, Horizons Conference Center,6200 State Street, Saginaw

I guess the Saginaw meeting on Thursday is the one intended for Saginaw County people. I plan to be there with bells on. We'll see if the Lonetree gang has learned any social graces since their episode of pack animal behavior at the last meeting in Saginaw. See you there!
