According to an email from Save The Water’s Edge, an associate contacted the organization to inform them of the meeting taking place and that, “They are not planning to notify the public because ‘they do not want a lot of dumb questions.’”

As of Friday at 3 PM, Save The Water’s Edge reported that the Iron County Clerk’s office could not find a public posting for this meeting.

GTac was part of a similar public meeting in Hurley on Tuesday, April 23, when the Iron County Board held a tightly-controlled question and answer session with GTac.  Watch the entire meeting here.
