A community meeting will be held tomorrow night to discuss the ColoWyo situation. WildEarth Guardians, an environmental group, sued the Office of Surface Mining over ColoWyo’s permits for their current operations. The group’s Jeremy Nichols says while the current lawsuit is simply about making sure the law was followed, WildEarth is committed to shutting down the coal industry, nationwide. Wild West Radio held an interview with Nichols regarding the lawsuit. You can listen to the entire interview below. Tomorrow night, ColoWyo and Tri-State representatives will get together with local government officials to educate the public about what the lawsuit is all about, as well as how they plan to address it. That meeting will be held from 6 to 8 at Moffat County High School. Another meeting will be held June 10th by the Office of Surface Mining. The public is also encouraged to attend that meeting, as the comments given will be used for the OSM’s new Environmental Assessment. Next week’s meeting will be held in the Grandstands Building at the Moffat County Fairgrounds. Nichols says he will try to make that meeting, if he feels it is safe to do so. Tomorrow, Wild West Radio will talk with Tri-State’s Public Affairs Manager, Drew Kramer.
