Second Public Meeting: July 11, Gainesville

TCEQ has scheduled a second public meeting on EOG's proposed air quality permit #95412.  The official notice is available here.

The public meeting is to be held at 7:00 PM in the Gainesville Civic Center (Main Room), 311 S. Weaver, Gainesville, Texas.

The purpose of the public meeting is to allow the public an opportunity to ask questions about the permit and the proposed industrial sand processing plant.

A couple of fresh questions on the minds of many in the wake of the notice of this second public meeting include:
- Why was such short notice given of the second public meeting?  TCEQ mailed the notice on July 3, and it appeared in local mailboxes on July 5, six days before the meeting.  No notice of the public meeting appeared in the Saint Jo Tribune.
- Why was the public meeting, which is likely to run well into the late evening, scheduled for the night before the 10 AM beginning of the contested case hearing?
