S. Fulton firm agrees to settlement over chemical stench |

Good Evening Neighbor:

This article was in Monday's Metro Section of the AJC.

I have spoken with Scott Zahler, Atty and it looks like we may be able to schedule a Town Hall Meeting the week of November 3rd.  I will get back with you as soon as it is set.  Bethany UMC is so wonderful (as usual) and willing to open their doors to us for the meeting.  Your letter with regard to participation in the class action should be going out by tomorrow.  From what I understand, the letters are coming from King and Spalding - the PSC and AMVAC attorneys.  (Remember they are trying to settle with us so I would suggest holding off signing anything until you have all the facts from our community attorneys.  I am sure that when we are all in a room together more of our questions will be answered - often we cannot think of everything that we would need to ask on our behalf and our neighbor might think of a question we have not thought about.)

I have included the information below in case you have need of it.
