Reminder about important meeting 1-11-11

Greetings To All,

I hoped your Christmas Holiday was wonderful! I have thought of all of you during the holidays..

Now that 2011 is here its a New Year and it's time to do the job of stopping North Carolina Division of Air Quality from issuing Morton Trucking an air permit. We can do It! Unlike the Board of Adjustment meeting the Air Quality will listen to our concerns that this proposed asphalt plant will have on us. We need to express all of our concerns to Air Quality. Our concerns with the Air we breathe and the effects this proposed asphalt plant will have on our day to day lives. Our concerns of reducing harmful pollutants that cause or contribute to asthma, emphysema, heart disease and other potentially fatal ailments.

On Tuesday, January 11, 2011 @ 6 pm a meeting at White Oak High School will be held to hear the concerns regarding the proposed asphalt plant will have on our community. The North Carolina Division of Air Quality will hold a public meeting to determine issuing Morton Trucking an air quality permit. Morton cannot operate his proposed asphalt plant without this permit.

Therefore we need to attend this meeting and voice our concerns.

I have attached a flier for anyone wanting to print and pass them out to their neighbors. I also have copies for anyone and they can be pick up at Durwood Humphrey & Sons Const. Co.
Any questions please call or email me.

I look forward to seeing everyone at this meeting,
Thank you
Carolyn Humphrey
