All the chemicals were supposed to be gone five years ago per DEC. Wonder why that didn't happen?

Didn't I read in your village board meeting minutes that EVERYONE from Emergency Services suggested that you leave that site alone???
You wouldn't listen, now, would you?

I hope Congress doesn't hear about this glue spill. They'll all be there sniffing it.

The site has been cleaned since Kleen Brite and their chemical spills. That does not mean that otehr companies cant occupy the building.

Get some of the former residents to talk about this.
The gov't and Kleen Brite hammered these people.
Just dump it & go move elsewhere.

I am a current resident in Brockport and have watched as some outside outfit is tearing this building apart piece by piece, release who knows what into the air. The smell of soap is more obnoxious than it was when the company was running. What I said was someone needs to watch closely as to what the people dismantling the place are doing.
