Community Forum Tonight re MVWA . . .

There will be a community forum sponsored by Assemblyman Marc Butler tonight, Thursday, Aug. 16 at 7 p.m., in the Amphitheater at Herkimer County Community College to address the Mohawk Valley Water Authority's expansion plans. Authority Executive Director Patrick Becher, representatives of environmental and sportsmen's groups, local elected officials, and various others have been invited to come.

Hopefully this will be a truly public forum where the public is allowed to speak, and not a "dog and pony show" designed to push one point of view.

More information is available in the Herkimer Telegram.

Who are the Guest Speakers? Can I as a public citizen ask questions at tonight's meeting at HCCC?

I only know of the speakers listed in the press. As far as the Public goes, I know of one person who asked Assemblyman Butler if he would have the opportunity to speak, but that query is as of today still unanswered.
