A forum this week will offer Cortland County residents a chance to hear opinions and additional perspectives on the health impacts and economics of importing incinerator into the county landfill.
A forum will be held Tuesday evening from 7 to 8:45 at the County Office Building to talk about impacts related to the “ash for trash” swap with Onondaga County.
Homer businessman Victor Siegle will speak about the economic impacts of the deal. Cortland County Legislator John Troy was slated to speak on the economics as well but due to a lack of financial data from the county, he has declined to participate.
Dr. Donald Hughes and Dr. Michael Wolfson will speak on the potential health impacts associated with the swap.
The open forum will be moderated by Jane Snell, dean of professional studies at SUNY Cortland.
