Chatham-Kent brass will be in attendance tonight to update Wheatley residents and business owners on the hydrogen sulphide gas situation in the West Kent community.
Municipal officials will provide an update into the investigation of the intermittent leak in the downtown that resulted in an explosion in late August.
There will be an opportunity to ask questions during an in-person session at the Talbot Trail Golf Club Wednesday at 6:30 p.m.
The event is being hosted by the Active Citizens Of Wheatley.
Mayor Darrin Canniff, West Kent councillors Melissa Harrigan and Mark Authier, and Chatham-Kent CAO Don Shropshire will be on hand.
Additional Chatham-Kent officials will participate electronically.
Active Citizens’ Chair Lauren Anderson will moderate the session.
The session will be also available through the municipality’s Facebook page, and residents will be able to ask questions through that platform as well.
Seating at the in-person event will be limited to 150 people inside, but a sound system will be set up outside to accommodate an additional 80 people. Proof of vaccination will be required for entry, and social distancing will be observed.
Attendance for the in-person session will be on a first-come, first-serve basis, with priority seating reserved for residents and businesses from the evacuation zone.
