EMERGENCY MEETING !
THURSDAYJUNE 14 AT 6:30 PM
FREE DINNER WILL BE SERVED
It has been 18 months since our fight began in January 2011 against the proposed (and unconstitutionally permitted) Waste Transfer Station on Hwy 434 and I-12. This fight has taken untold hours of dedicated work by many of our citizens.
Please be advised that the full Board of Directors of CCL met last night to consider a proposed settlement by IESI. After careful review, the Board decided that it will not support the settlement offered nor the proposed zoning changes that accompanied it.
Therefore, the Board has called an Emergency General Membership Meeting to be held next Thursday, June 14th at 6:30 pm at the John Davis Recreation Center (the Gym), at which time the entire CCL Membership will be presented with the proposed settlement and also will be allowed to cast votes on the matter. Although the Board voted against the proposal, as promised, the Board will defer to the vote of its membership.
As a result of last night’s decision, and if the membership agrees, CCL will not join IESI and the Parish in a joint motion to defer the Supreme Court deadline for briefs. Our attorneys will also serve notice to the BOA to reschedule a hearing on the revocation of the permit for the original site.
This is a very important meeting and the culmination of hard work for all of you that have stayed involved. Board Members will be there to answer your questions after the presentation and before the vote. A light meal of beans and rice will be served at no cost as 6:30 is traditionally dinner time. Don’t let hunger keep you away!
Actual voting will be restricted to 2012 Paid Members.
ANYONE MAY ATTEND AND
ANYONE WHO IS NOT A MEMBER MAY BECOME A MEMBER, PAY $25 DUES AND CAST A VOTE
