Two citizens meetings scheduled about Tonawanda Coke

Citizens from Tonawanda and Grand Island are invited to a pair of meetings to solidify mobilization efforts in advance of a Oct. 10 hearing between the Tonawanda Coke Corp. and New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, Citizen Science Community Resources announced Thursday.

The meetings will be held at 11 a.m. Saturday at the River Road Fire Hall, 39 River Road, Tonawanda, and at 6:30 p.m. Oct. 8 in the community room at Burger King, 1700 Grand Island Blvd., Grand Island.

They are intended to answer the community's questions regarding potential health implications related to ongoing pollution at Tonawanda Coke, said Jackie James Creedon, director of Citizen Science Community Resources.

The DEC seeks to revoke an air permit for Tonawanda Coke in connection with violations dating back to earlier this year.
