FPL: This Couldn't be Good. By Geniusofdespair
If you want to request a public meeting -- everyone request one please -- you have 30 days from today, according to this notice from the Department of Environmental Protection. In fact, we should have two public meeting one at Miami City Hall in Coconut Grove and one in South Miami-Dade -- South Miami for instance or Pinecrest. Yes, I know it is a renewal but this is an opportunity to get information and make sure we are not endangering Biscayne Bay. Just because we have done it in the past, doesn't mean we should do it in the future. Has anything been added? Was not aware that FPL ever operated waste water treatment and effluent disposal facilities in the past. Is this an addition?
DEP you and your notice sucks and here is why: 1. You have too many hoops to jump through just to request a meeting. We want a meeting to get information, why do we have to supply a laundry list of items that we couldn't possibly know? 2. Why couldn't we do it by email, why snail mail? 3. Why not automatically hold a meeting, why should we have to request it? 4. And, it says, that if we request the meeting, it doesn't mean you will actually hold one. What kind of crap is that?
Here is what you must do people, to request a meeting:
