NJ Natural Gas Co. tonight

Read All About It...

Atlantic Highlands will be hosting a meeting with New Jersey Natural Gas Company and state Department of Environmental Protection representatives regarding the 25-year project of removing the tar-coal contamination from the borough.

During its meeting last night, the Borough Council expressed its dissatisfaction with the pace of the project and urged residents to attend the meeting tonight to voice their feelings to the two organizations in charge.

According to town officials, the company intends to complete mitigation up to Center Avenue by 2010, which Rast said is only half. "I'd be dead by the time they finish the job," Rast said.

The meeting will run from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the Fireman's Field House on Avenue C and West Washington Avenue. Check for updates from the meeting on my blog: tomorrow.
