One thought on “Board Meeting Agenda 2016-02-15

  1. Yes, and now you can add cadmium to the list. So, instead of sending neighborhood residents to local glass manufacturers for ‘isn’t this quaint’ tours, let us be more pro active, and perhaps skeptical of DEQ’s nearly useless role in monitoring toxicity in both the air and the water!!!!!!!!
