At tonight's City Council Business Meeting they will be voting on the controversial Veolia Audit/Maintenance Plan. You have the opportunity to call in and let them know your thoughts. They have been accepting comments from people outside the City of Binghamton as the Sewage Treatment plant effects many municipalities.
Here are a TON of talking points: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1tKviNiKjr5XNMISb4h0MGxnQXEinYGeOlYM95Qic5Ow/edit
Typically, the call in information has been changing moments before the meeting, so you may have to use a phone or you maybe have to use Zoom. Be prepared to do either if you want to make a comment during the meeting.

Live Discussion is to make these meetings more entertaining and bearable.
This question could apply to anyone who works in an environment that is often related to smell.
Maybe I'm being ignorant but I assume a sewage treatment plant or a landfill would smell. Is the smell something you get used to and by extension, does it affect you on your lunch break?
Thanks in advance
Hey guys, I’m thinking about going Poo Diving can anyone give me a rough estimate of what the pay is like for these guys? Or anyone with experience to tell me what it’s like?
Does anyone know if the sewage treatment plant on the east side is getting fixed this year? With temps warming up it smells really bad, and it’s polluting Crabtree Creek that leads into the Neuse river, which is now loaded with E Coli from the raw sewage.
Here is the latest news regarding the Sewage Treatment Plant Audit controversy.

Details here. This is great news for Victoria's reputation and for the surrounding environment.
It is sad.
I want to have another live chat during the City Council Business Meeting to raise awareness and because chatting makes it easier to get through.
I guess they're taking public comment via Zoom.
