Tonight, November 14, at 7:00 p.m. in City Hall, BoMA will discuss the latest EnSafe report on the proposed crematory. We’ve been telling the City for six months that this crematory will emit mercury at levels that could be harmful, and now the EnSafe report reveals that mercury concentration could at times reach beyond “safe” levels.
Will you be there tonight at 7:00 p.m. to, one again, voice your opposition to a crematory that will endanger the health and livability of Spring Hill? What’s been revealed over the past several months is shocking: While the City was told that the crematory would release no visible emissions, EnSafe and others confirm that “steam” or other visible emissions will occur at certain times. Further, while the City was told that there would be no odor, the president of the crematory manufacturing company was forced to reveal that there will at times be odor coming from the crematory. And now, it has been confirmed that airborne mercury released from the facility can at times reach levels considered hazardous.
In addition to tonight’s “work session” meeting, BoMA will take a vote on the proposed crematory next Monday, November 21 at 7p.m. We hope you’ll join us either this Monday or next Monday as this important issue comes before our city leaders again.
Copperstone Update: Also, tonight at 5:30 p.m. the Planning Commission will be voting on a proposal for Copperstone East “condominiums.” You’ll remember that BoMA turned down a proposal for apartments, but now the developer is back before the Planning Commission trying to do an end-run on BoMA by calling the exact same plan “condominiums” and attempting to sneak a proposal through the Planning Commission that won’t have to go to BoMA. Please come and express your disgust and tell the Planning Commission to vote “NO” on a plan that our elected leaders have already rejected – tonight at 5:30 p.m. in City Hall.
