Duke to Hold "Open House" in Spruce Pine in Late February
Jan 9, 2014 — Hi everyone. Apologies for the lack of recent communications. I reached out to our friends at Duke today and here is their response. I'm not very happy they are making all these plans without consulting with other stakeholders but at least they are trying to provide some transparency into their spraying for 2014. As always, let me know if you have any comments/suggestions. Here is the note from Jason Walls at Duke (Regional Manager who needs some stakeholder outreach training...):
"We have committed to scheduling a public open house in late February before any spraying resumes. Once we nail the date down, we will advertise it broadly. During the Open House, company experts will be on hand to talk about our spraying schedule, products, application techniques and the “no spray” designation. We will likely have the meeting at the Baptist Church in Spruce Pine. "
