Transfer Station controversy is not over!!

Good Morning Neighbor:

As you are well aware, the Citizens of Fairburn took a major stand and let their voices ring out with regard to a Waste Transfer Station being placed in their community.  The City Council of Fairburn heard them and voted unanimously to not move forward with the Walker Brothers proposal.  So now Walker Brothers is upset that the City Council took such an action and is taking legal action against the City and the City Manager.  Call me simple minded here but the City Council, Mayor and City Manager work for the Citizens.  So the way I see it they did what their bosses asked them to do so Walker Brothers should be taking legal action against the Citizens.  Oh, wait a minute that could never happen because the Citizens are also who ultimately keeps Walker Brothers in business.

Here is the link to the story below - I encourage you to blog and give your opinion on this story.  Also, I am posting this story on with a poll as well.  

Walker Brothers should seize the opportunity to get on board with the "Green" planning that it is apparent that the Citizens want for their area - they could be talking a win-win situation for all instead of fear and litigation.

Your Neighbor,


Constance Thomas Biemiller, Chairman
South Fulton and Fayette Community Task Force

Never underestimate the power of a few committed people to change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.
