Brockton | by Robyn Garvey  

Brockton wants people to sit on a Committee looking at the proposed deep geological nuclear waste repository.

Brockton is looking for some open minded individuals to sit on a Citizen Advisory Committee into the proposed deep geological nuclear waste repository.

The municipality has had to extend the deadline for applications until the end of the month due to very little interest being show by the public.

Clerk Deb Roth encourages residents to consider the task.

She says the members do not have to come with nuclear or environmental expertise, but rather an open mind and willingness to serve.

Individuals will be charged with the task of learning more about the proposed nuclear waste repository and what it will mean to Brockton.

Roth says its very important this Citizen group is made up of individuals from various backgrounds to provide a diverse perspective.

These citizen representatives will be responsible for liaising between the Nuclear Waste Management Organization and the general public.

Roth says a project of this magnitude requires community involvement and she encourages members of the public to step forward for the task at hand.

Anyone wishing to serve the community in this way should contact the Municipal Office.
