Chemical weapons destruction operations are planned to take place in central Kentucky. Army leaders want to keep citizens informed about the project and receive feedback from the community, and two citizens’ advisory groups exist to represent the community and allow your voice to be heard.
The Kentucky Chemical Demilitarization Citizens’ Advisory Commission (CAC) and the Chemical Destruction Community Advisory Board (CDCAB) will hold a meeting on Tuesday, Dec. 11, beginning at 1:30 p.m. in Rooms A and B on the lobby level at Eastern Kentucky University’s Carl D. Perkins Building located on Kit Carson Drive. The event is open to the public and is accessible to individuals with disabilities.
The CAC, chaired by Doug Hindman, is a governor-appointed commission that represents community and state interests to the U.S. Army and Department of Defense.
The CDCAB, co-chaired by Madison County Judge-Executive Kent Clark and Craig Williams, executive director of the Chemical Weapons Working Group, is an independent subcommittee of the CAC. It is made up of a diverse group of community leaders who represent the views and concerns of the local community regarding Kentucky’s chemical weapons destruction program.
