Debris is toxic



I understand that the city has known since April that the pile of unsightly waste next to the Monon Trail contains hazardous material. Now four months later, we are told it will be removed, but not when. In other words, everyone who lives near this mess may breathe in toxic air for months, maybe years. It seems to some of us that those in such a hurry to demolish the grain elevator might have done their homework and dealt with this problem before the demolition. Question: Clearly that huge pile of hazardous waste will be available for all to see during the International Arts Festival? Doesn’t say much aboutCarmel’s interest in a safe environment, does it? And what about the safety of food prepared at Bub’s Café and other nearby restaurants? I live close to this eyesore and have conquered cancer once; I do not wish to suffer another round resulting from nearby hazardous waste.
