MIDDLEPORT - FMC Corp. will host an open house with a Halloween theme from 5 to 7 p.m. Wednesday (26th) in its community office, 8 S. Vernon St., Middleport.
Apple cider and doughnuts will be served, along with Halloween giveaways and safety tips. The Middleport Fire Department will have a fire truck on display.
FMC, which operates an agricultural chemical plant in Middleport, opened the office to make information available to residents about the company and environmental cleanups in the village. Environmental agencies say the company's plant is the source of arsenic contamination in village soil, and FMC has paid for most of the remedial work in Middleport over the past 20 years.
