The meeting is set for 6 p.m. Thursday at the East Side Community Center, 6156 Douglas Ave.
Almost 20 families are working with We Energies about the impact of living next to the Oak Creek Power Plant, which they say has had an impact on their health, drinking water, and property values over the years, said the group’s attorney Maxwell Livingston. A number of those neighbors also came to the Joint Board of Health meeting to ask that the group advocate on their behalf to have the Wisconsin Department of Health Services investigate their health concerns.
We Energies spokesperson Brian Manthey told the Racine County Eye last month that they just became aware of the neighbors health concerns and they are looking into the matter.
