Pineville Town Meeting to Allow Citizens to Voice Concerns about Coal and Wyoming County Coal Impoundments
Pineville, W.Va., area residents will learn the findings of a recent survey of southern West Virginia coal communities at an upcoming meeting, which will also offer a forum for addressing coal-related issues and concerns.
Hosted by representatives of the Coal Impoundment Project, the meeting will be held from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m., June 9, at Pineville Middle School. In addition, officials with the Coal Impoundment Project will be available in the schools computer room from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. to give an overview of the projects Web site and provide hands-on instruction on its use. This pre-meeting session is optional, but the public is encouraged to attend.
The meeting will address our recent survey that was designed to gain insight into how southern West Virginia coalfield residents view their communities, their environment, coal impoundments and other coal-mining-related issues, says J. Davitt McAteer, director of the Coal Impoundment Project.
