NRC Holds Public Meetings Thursday In Pottstown

WASHINGTON DC – Two public meetings to be conducted by the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC), which are intended to give area residents an opportunity to comment on environmental issues they think the NRC should consider as it contemplates requests to renew operating licenses for Exelon Nuclear’s Limerick Generating Station, will be held Thursday (Sept. 22, 2011) at 2 and 7 p.m. in Sunnybrook Ballroom, 50 Sunnybrook Rd., Sanatoga PA, the commission announced.

An open house, during which residents can also personally meet with NRC staff members, will be held for an hour before each of the two meetings, at 1 and 6 p.m. respectively. Also at the meetings, staff members will describe the license renewal review process.

Editor’s Note: The graphic at top was submitted to The Sanatoga Post by Ikeda King, a licensing assistant in the NRC’s Division of License Renewal, along with a request for our publication’s quote for the cost of advertising what her letter described as the above “legal notice.” Although The Post accepts, and receives revenue from, all kinds of advertisements, it notified King that it will report the announcement of these meetings as news and will not charge the NRC an advertising fee.
