At a meeting at the Planning Department of the County of Humboldt, a Permit was granted this morning for the demolition of three buildings at the pulp mill. It did not appear that the public was notified of the meeting. The Air District was not notified of the meeting. There were concerns voiced during public comment that the Freshwater Tissue Co. project did not meet the requirements for an exemption to the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) . A CEQA study could help prevent accidents and spills during the removal and transport of toxins from the site. Planning Department staff discussed precautions that will be taken to prevent accidents. This permit can be appealed to the State Coastal Commission. Toxins will be trucked out on Broadway/Highway 101.
