I'll post any updates after the meeting.

 Quoting: juju


sorry but the "officials" have decided they have more pressing matters to attend to than speaking with concerned citizens thus no representatives will be attending the meeting
iow, citizens, you're on your own

[link to assumptionla.wordpress.com]

The Assumption Parish Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness and the Unified Command Group have not called for a public meeting this week. It has been brought to our attention that a meeting planned by citizens has been called for on Thursday. No formal notice of this meeting was issued to parish and state officials prior to information being released to the media. The preparation time needed for professional and up-to-date data to be presented and distributed requires 72 hours, minimum. We have been advised by Texas Brine that entry into Oxy Cavern #3 could take place on Thursday at the earliest; however, more likely by Friday evening. It would be inappropriate to hold a meeting on Thursday, 9/20/12, as the focus and resources of all responding agencies are on Texas Brine entering the cavern. For the safety of the residents, workers, and all concerned citizens, the Unified Command Group feels that this operation continues to be the main objective. More information will become available once the cavern has been entered and tests on the cavern, established by the scientific group, have been performed and hopefully will provide answers to the questions the residents have asked from the beginning of this event.

The Unified Command Group will continue providing information through blogs posts and press releases as it becomes available. They have also committed to schedule a date in the near future once results from tests conducted after cavern entry and further information is available. In addition, the science group continues to meet and provide oversight to the operation and provide support to the Unified Command Group.

Any local residents requesting information are encouraged to call the Assumption OEP at 985-369-7386 or visit the command post in Bayou Corne where you can be briefed on the latest updates and information specific to daily operations.

These people are desperate to find out information. My son's fiancee's family has farm land that abuts land just a mile or so from growing outer edge of the sinkhole. They have been unsuccessful at getting any news. Keeping my fingers crossed for them but not expecting they'll get a whole lot from the meeting.

Good call MO, this whole thing reeks of negligence
“One of the saddest lessons of history is this: If we’ve been bamboozled long enough, we tend to reject any evidence of the bamboozle. We’re no longer interested in finding out the truth. The bamboozle has captured us. It’s simply too painful to acknowledge, even to ourselves, that we’ve been taken. Once you give a charlatan power over you, you almost never get it back.” – Carl Sagan

We, are not desperate to find out information. Please don't speak for us. Personally, I do think the day the cavern is to be entered is not a very good day for a meeting, and that all focus should indeed be on the cavern entry.

yes, patassa, people ARE concerned
maybe you aren't and that's okay
but after bp i doubt many feel that safe
i remember people on glp then talking about how it wasn't something to worry about despite the secrecy
now that fish have lesions and shrimp are being caught without eye sockets those people don't seem to have a lot to say, though
funny that, no?

you simply cannot justify being unable to spare ONE person to talk with them
read the link below...

[link to www.nbc33tv.com]

The emergency meeting will address concerns from those residents regarding what they believe to be a lack of real-time information from the Assumption Parish Office of Emergency Preparedness (OEP), Louisiana Department of Natural Resources (DNR), Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) and Texas Brine Co., the company in charge of the suspect cavern inside the Napoleonville Salt Dome.

We are concerned with the lack of transparency from our public officials on this emergency situation,” John Achee, Jr., a Bayou Corne community advocate, said. “There is no citizen representation on the incident command team or community liaison to help communicate real-time with both existing and displaced residents. Additionally, we have learned that an esteemed and well-regarded Louisiana scientist has been blocked access to the team meetings.
