WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW

- Please plan to attend. A good turnout will show MLS and TCEQ that we are determined to stop this landfill and that we are committed to the fight and the Contested Case Hearing.
- If you own property within a mile of the proposed facility then TCEQ will probably agree that you are an affected person and that if you wish, you can be included in the Contested Case Hearing.
- CAML has standing at the Contested Case Hearing. Blackburn and Carter attorneys represent CAML. Anyone who is a member of CAML will be represented at the hearing.
- You can also request to be an affected person with independent standing at the hearing. TCEQ will consider anyone who lives within a mile of the proposed landfill. Bring a utility bill or some piece of evidence to show your address.
