A public meeting to elicit comments on proposed Formosa Plastics project to install four new enclosed ground flares drew around 40 people Thursday night at the Bauer Community Center.

“I been here a long time and before Formosa came they promised to be good neighbors. They haven’t been good neighbors,” said Fredrick Woodland, whose family has owned land near the plant for more than 160 years. He spoke against the permits during the formal comment portion of the meeting.
