Members of Concerned Citizens sit on the Cattaraugus County Legislature's Farmersville Task Force and the Cattaraugus County Soil and Water Conservation District. Membership is open to residents of Cattaraugus County, owners of property in Cattaraugus County, those who live nearby ouside the county, and to our friends anywhere.
Our organization is also affiliated with Citizens Environmental Coalition (Albany) and Citizens Clearinghouse for Hazardous Waste (Arlington, VA). We want to reach out to concerned citizens throughout western New York, including our friends in Allegany County, trying to gain control of local waste management.
Our goal is to keep the public armed with information not generally distributed by government officials or private corporations. Please help us in this effort. Membership dues will pay for ongoing review of NYSDEC's processing of the IWS application for a landfill permit in Farmersville, and help show potential grant funders the depth of public support for our mission.
