After Unified Command officials refused a request from residents, some living only 2,000 feet from the sinkhole disaster, to attend their Emergency Town Hall Meeting, Assumption Parish officials contacted the media and other officials to urge them to shun the meeting, according to a local community advocate and organizer.
"Assumption Parish Officials are calling the media, officals, agencies and Texas Brine in an attempt to discourage them all from attending the the Town Hall Meeting [that] you have pleaded with them to attend and provide you an inperson update on this most dangerous, dynamic, fluid situation," Achee advised sinkhole vicinity residents Wednesday.
