E-M:/ Michigan Strategic Fund Hearing re. Central Wayne Incinerator

Enviro-Mich message from Lydia H Fischer <lydfisch@mindspring.com>

The Southeast Michigan Group of the Sierra Club has been fighting the
expansion of this incinerator (located in Inkster) for several years.  The
Central Wayne Incinerator Limited Partnership has requested that the bonds
it will float to finance the exemption be granted tax exempt status by the
Michigan Strategic Fund.  There'll be a hearing on this issue on April 22
at 9:30 a.m. at the Marion Oaks Golf Club, 2255 Pinckney Rd in Howell (exit
137 on W-B I-96, then south on Pinckney).Sierra SEMG will be testifying in
opposition; it's unconscionable that the public would have to help pay
through a tax expenditure for a bigger facility that will add noxious
pollution to an already burdened area of the state. There is also an issue
of accountability as the MSF is an agency of the Jobs Commission which
reports directly to the Governor.  Questions to Lydia on e-mail or Anna
Holden by phone, 313-331-0932.  Thanks for your attention.
