The City Of Bella Vista has a city council meeting, Monday, January 28, and residents affected by the “stump dump” fire are ready to speak up.
Some people said they are fed up with the decisions the city has made and are ready to see a real change.
On Saturday, January 26, members of the Bella Vista-based Stop The Smoke Coalition were handing out face masks. Designated street captains went door-to-door and made sure everyone in nearby neighborhoods is being kept up to date.
Amber Goin, with the coalition, is spending another day in the hospital with her son who she said is sick from the air quality in Bella Vista. Goin said her biggest concern now is the dramatic health effects that many people don’t even know about, especially children.
“It’s disheartening … it’s hard to find out because blood tests are normal and it’s just this thing that happened. And the more people reach out to me through these websites, the more you see how many children are being affected by this,” said Goin in reference to her son’s respiratory illness.
The City Council Meeting will begin at 6:30 p.m. at the District Court, 612 W Lancashire Blvd. Bella Vista, AR 72715.
