Officials plan tour of Allied Paper Dump


KALAMAZOO (WKZO) -- Kalamazoo City Commissioners have approved creating a 160-thousand dollar war-chest as they pursue an acceptable clean-up plan from the Environmental Protection Agency at the Allied Paper Site.

Rep. Fred Upton, Senator Carl Levin and EPA officials will be in town next Tuesday to tour the 80 acre dump site on Alcott.

They have also invited Senator Debbie Stabenow to attend.

Commissioner Don Cooney says only elected officials and the media will be allowed on the tour, but it would be nice if they were greeted with a crowd of demonstrators demanding a total clean-up.

The money will be spent on lawyers and consultants who specialize in environmental law.
