RE: A-95 Review of FRB
Each year the state must determine its position in support, or otherwise,
of federal public works projects. This is done through the A-95
Review process established by the federal government just for this purpose.
Part of this process includes a meeting held each year by the Department
of State Planning which affords various interested governmental and
private environmental agencies to comment publically upon each of the
proposed or ongoing projects the state is being asked to support at
the federal level.
One of these meetings was held recently in Tallahassee. I'm not sure of
the name of the group but it was a bureau of state government that is
concerned with preservation of archeological sites facing possible
destruction by construction of a public works project. The bureau at
the meeting blasted Southwest for not having answered a letter it sent
sometime around the first of the year inquiring as to whether or not we
had determined if FRB (that part being constructed) would be destroying
any known or unknown sites of archeological value.
I have asked Zeb Palmer to review his files to see if we have received
such a letter. By copy of this memo to Bobby Laseter and Charlie Miller,
I'm asking them to check their files also.
I appreciate a reply as soon as possible.
