City Extends Landfill Expansion Public Comment Period

Due to the overwhelming turnout at the May 19th meeting held at the Joe Bridges Clubhouse, the city has decided to extend the public comment period to July 31st in order for everyone to have a chance to have their opinion heard. In an email written to GOCHA President David Weeks, General Manager of Public Works Steve Zurn said that it was important to give residents a chance to have their opinions heard and therefore the city is extending the public comment period by 60 days. This will give residents more time to digest the Environmental Impact Report and comment. If you would like to have your voice heard, please take the time to look at the report and let the city know your opinion.

All comments must be submitted in writing to the Sanitation Districts (Attention: Ms. Debra Bogdanoff) at 1955 Workman Mill Road, Whittier, CA 90601 or by email at no later than July 31, 2014. Any comments provided should identify specific environmental concerns related to the proposed project. If you have any questions or need additional information, please call Ms. Bogdanoff at (562) 908–4288, extension 2734.
