The Airport Authority recently announced the purchase of a $46,000 gas-fired waste incinerator which will be used to burn all trash from international commercial and private flights. Permits to operate the incinerator are pending during a short period for public question and comment. The next hearing on the incinerator is scheduled for February 2, 2009 at 5:30 pm at the Mid-Michigan Health Department, 1307 E. Townsend Rd., St. Johns, MI 48879.

The Clinton County Democratic Party is concerned that there has not been an adequate assessment of the impact of the incinerator on public health, the local environmental or businesses in southern Clinton County.  This Greenpeace article sites several dangers and toxins associated with incineration.
