People in the northern tier are asking burning questions. The landscape of the New Milford area, specifically the land off Interstate 81 at the Gibson exit, may soon change. There’s talk of an incinerator being build there.
More than 150 people poured into First United Methodist Church in New Milford Tuesday evening wanting to know more about what may be built and what may be burned. Many oppose the plan, saying similar businesses have tried to encroach on the area for years. Hugh Coombs, of Hallstead, says “I’m a former president of rescue, the environmental group that kicked out or kept out 13 major polluters that wanted to make a garbage can out of our county.”
