[OIL] 8/21/15: WESSON OPPOSES BURNER ANYWHERE AT MURPHY

Council President Herb Wesson supported our community opposing FMOG’s proposal to install a wasteful gas burning flare in the parkland (27th and St Andrews).  He recently submitted a revised letter (see attached) to the Zoning Administrator joing our community in OPPOSING THE INSTALLATION OF THE BURNER ANYWHERE ON THE PROPERTY including in the active work area.  In the attached new statement our council representative states:

“While I contine to affirm my office’s position to Freeport-McMoRan’s proposal to expand its operations into the landscaped area, I am further clarifying that I stand with the community and oppose the installation of the CEB800 gas burning flare at any location on the property unless the community and Freeport-McMoRan are able to reach an agreement.
