E-Alert:

All Rome property owners:

 

It's been 3 years since we first heard of the Concentrated Animal Feeding Operation (CAFO) proposed next door in Saratoga.  Efforts by a strong group of Saratoga citizens and some of you have successfully kept it from moving forward.  But, it appears the day of reckoning approaches.  Sources within the DNR indicate the Environmental Impact Report from the organization seeking to build the CAFO is near completion.  The DNR's review has been ongoing and their Environmental Impact Statement is expected early in 2016, possibly February.  Then begins the public review process and public hearing - that time when all your efforts are needed to push back on this proposed CAFO.  This can be done by you attending hearings in person or you can make your feelings known through other means.

 

Tri-Lakes Management and the Rome Town Board are co-sponsoring an informational meeting for Rome property owners on January 16 at 1 pm at the Rome Town Hall.  Note that this meeting is being held on a Saturday to enable attendance for those of you who don't live here full time.  There will be approximately an hour and a half of presentations from a Dr. of water science, a DNR area director, our state assemblyman, town board member, Tri-Lakes and involved citizens.  Questions are encouraged.  As the DNR permitting process moves forward, this may be your last chance to make a difference in your town's future.

 

Come and learn why this issue is so important to the maintenance of Rome's air quality, water purity and water levels in our wells and lakes and our property values.  Please mark your calendars and plan to attend this Informational Meeting on Sat, Jan 16 at 1 pm at the Rome Town Hall.  Please share this with your fellow property owners.
