Manufactured Gas Plant Site Follow-Up Meeting
The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation has now responded to the request for an additional community meeting regarding the remedial actions at the former Manufactured Gas Plant on Beach Channel Drive in Rockaway Park. The last meeting on July 23 left many important questions unanswered.
The news of this meeting has been released by Assemblywoman Audrey I. Pheffer, Congressman Anthony Weiner, State Senator Malcolm Smith and Councilman Joseph P. Addabbo, Jr. Although there is no set date, they vow to keep the community informed as soon as a meeting is scheduled to address this vital community issue.
Assembleywoman Pheffer, Congressman Weiner, Senator Smith and Councilman Addabbo stated in a letter that "DEC will indeed hold a public information meeting to follow up on the questions raised at the public availability session at Beach Channel High School."
