coun ty judge with information that may help fight the plant last night There are plans underway to con struct an Ingram Readymix batch con crete plant at the intersection of Hwy 281 and FM 1863 Residents are opposed to the plant saying it will cause air water and traffic problems The residents have asked the county for help in stopping the plant County Judge Carter Casteel told residents at a public meeting at the Rulverde Librarv Mondav that shf would like to help but she first had to be sure it was legal She said she and Commissioner Danny Scheel have sent letters asking the Texas Natural Resource Conservation Commission TNRCC to take into consideration what residents are saying She said any action beyond that must first be approved by an attorney to make sure it is acceptable If someone can show me how to do it Ill be the first one out there trying to do something for you But if I cant and I try to I jeopardize the county and its she told the crowded room Kate Mathis organizer of Citizens League for Environmental Awareness Now told Casteel that she had heard from a lawyer who said a local government could make a rec ommendation to the TNRCC board for a rule determination variance or order of the board if it applies to an area within the local governments control The TNRCC board would then give the recommendation maximum consideration Casteel said she would look into the issue to see if the county could in fact do something However she said it sounded like the county could not make a recommendation until the board has actually made a decision She said this was one of the things she would have to check on If Im going to go argue for some thing I want to go with my feet on the ground and not in the said Casteel One resident said she just wanted to know if the county could be count ed on for support both now and after a lf someone can show me how to do it Ill be the first one out there trying to do something for County Judge Carter Casteel decision is made Scheel said he does support the res idents However he would also have to make sure its an acceptable action before he voted for it in Commission ers Court because he does not want to risk a multimillion dollar lawsuit he said If I could go out there with my staff and touch the ground and make it all go away I would do he said TNRCC only focuses on air quality so residents concerns about water and traffic are not brought up in the hear ings One resident said the way to bring the issues to the forefront was to flood the TNRCC with letters about water quality and flood the Texas Depart ment of Transportation with letters about the traffic conditions The residents showed Casteel and Scheel a video of the intersection where the plant will be located They said traffic is already a concern and the plant would only make the situation Its going to take a school bus getting hit by a concrete truck to make something said another con cerned citizen Casteel said she realizes the traffic is a problem and something needs to be done regardless if the plant goes up She said she plans to call the Depart ment of Transportation and get one or two of the officials to the intersection during the rush hour to show them the problem and to see what can be done Youve kept saying traffic is bad but the best argument you made to me was the tape of the cars stacking she said I think the answer may be to put a red and green light The TNRCC hearing on air quality is scheduled for Sept 7 in Austin Another hearing will be held on Sept Mathis has asked that Scheel write another letter of support before then and he said he would Foundation formed to raise money for McKenna Hospital By SUSAN FLYNT ENGLAND Staff Writer Home grown from grass roots community donations still nonprofit after
