County wants to question Chemours reps

“I’d like to send them a request to meet with this full board,” said Chairman Ray Britt on Monday.
“And I just don’t think they would come if we asked.” “Well then, if they won’t, they need to tell us why,” Britt responded.
Some other commissioners felt the same way.
“People are still having to rely on bottled water, and we’ve been trough two holidays already,” said Commissioner Ophelia Munn-Goins.
“I think it’s time we started putting pressure on them for answers,” he said.
The board voted to have County Manager Greg Martin send a letter to Chemours representatives to meet with the county.
She started with the county health department in 1994.
