The Virginia Coal and Energy Commission’s Uranium Mining Subcommittee will meet at 6:00 Tuesday evening at Chatham High School.
Residents are invited to comment on the draft of a socioeconomic study of uranium mining and milling.
“Certainly all pertinent suggestions would be added to the revised draft of the scope that will be crafted after the public meeting,” said David A. Bovenizer, the spokesman for Uranium Mining Subcommittee Chairman.
Anyone who wants to comment can sign up about an hour before the meeting starts. They will be given three minutes to speak.
Uranium mining and milling activity could have an impact on property values in Pittsylvania County, and that needs to be addressed in the study.
Homeowners should speak out to protect their interests.
