Coeymans Clean Air Law To Be Discussed Thursday
The Albany County town of Coeymans is scheduled to consider action on a clean air law Thursday.
The Coeymans town board has been considering a clean air law that would restrict emissions and monitor for a variety of airborne pollutants. Town Supervisor Phillip Crandall says the measure will be on Thursday’s town board meeting agenda.
The measure was proposed after Coeymans residents in late 2017 got word that the Lafarge cement plant in the neighboring village of Ravena was considering using processed municipal waste from Hartford, Connecticut as fuel. The company says it has no plans to import or burn processed waste.
Some residents are concerned with potential health impacts from emissions. Others say the law could hurt local industry. Thursday’s Coeymans town board meeting is set to begin at 7 p.m.
