Town Hall Meeting

Good Morning Neighbor:

And, it looks to be a beautiful fall day to day!  

Scott Zahler's office confirmed yesterday afternoon that they can be at a Town Hall Meeting this Thursday November 6 at 7pm to answer the community's questions regarding the class action lawsuit.  We will be asking the Environmental Protection Division to be at that meeting to inform us of the final closure of the solidification pit at PSC.  We will also invite representatives from the North Fayette Association and the South Fulton Civic Association to be at this meeting.  These neighborhood groups are something we should all make sure we are giving of our participation -  we know that a voice of many can truly make an impact on our local and state government.  Something I loved hearing the other night while attending the SFCA meeting is that there is a lot of talk about creating change in government - well the South Fulton Civic Association declared they are the change and they are ready to to make it happen.

So, it is vital that we all attend this meeting whether you received a letter or not because this has always been about more than a lawsuit - it has been about the protection and prosperity of our community!!!!

I want to reconfirm once again with the Church Secretary that the sanctuary is available - as of a week ago it was.  So let's plan to meet at Bethany United Methodist this Thursday at 7pm.  If someone could create a flyer that I could email out and we could pass out to our neighborhoods that would be very helpful.

I know many of you have already received letters and have many questions - be sure to get the word out to your neighbors this maybe one of the only times questions can be asked that need to asked.

Your neighbor,


Connie Thomas Biemiller, Chair
South Fulton and Fayette Community Task Force

As Margaret Mead once said:

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