* CCNS would like to encourage the
public to attend the City Council meeting on Wednesday, February
25, at 7:00 p.m., to say "No WIPP trucks on St. Francis
The council is asking the public to voice its opinion on
whether Ordinance 1197-33, restricting the hours of WIPP nuclear
waste transport on St. Francis Drive, should be repealed The
ordinance was passed on October 1997 as a restriction, which the
Department of Energy has since misrepresented as a permission.
By misrepresenting the intent of this ordinance, the DOE has
attempted to divide our community--therefore we support its
immediate repeal and in its place a strong and unified stance by
the city council against WIPP and radioactive waste transport
through Santa Fe.
* Los Alamos National Laboratories (LANL) will hold an
Environmental Safety and Health meeting at Sweeney Center, on
Marcy St. in Santa Fe, on Tuesday evening, February 24.
For more information about these meetings, and their exact
times, please contact CCNS at 986-1973.
