Tempers in Attica are getting as hot as that pile of glass and plastic blamed for a foul odor that has permeated the village for months.
More than 50 residents crowded into the Attica Village Board meeting last night wanting answers.
A State DEC report just released yesterday claims the odor poses no health risk.
Representative Kathy Hochul says the situation will be officially handled by the EPA in order to streamline both the process and the distribution of information to residents.
Hochul outlined what the next course of action for the EPA will be
“The EPA will now be taking the lead position,” Hochul announced today. “And their immediate priority will be puting out the fires and then they will handle proper remediation of the site. Then they’re also as a third step to cost recovery after everything has settled down.”
Hochul says the results from this week’s air testing by the DEC will be released next week.
