Items of Interest:
Good news! On June 26, 2019, Judge Robert Mayberger, Appellate Division, issued a TRO (Temporary Restraining Order) against the Sand Land Mine. This prevents mining deeper until the Supreme Court Judge issues a decision on our preliminary injunction. The NCC was a litigator in the lawsuit that got the TRO. The NCC gets results. We are also suing the DEC for flip flopping and issuing a permit to this known polluter.
Thank you to all who wrote letters, made phone calls and spoke at meetings demanding that the health of our water supply beneath the Sand Land Mine is a top priority.
Thank you to all who paid their 2019 Member Dues. Our annual newsletter will soon be mailed to every address in Noyac. Please look out for it. Ask your neighbors if they are a member.
