The U.S. Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge office will host a public workshop March 6 to discuss the FY 2014 budget for the Environmental Management program and the Oak Ridge cleanup priorities.
The workshop, which will include presentations by senior members of DOE’s environmental staff in Oak Ridge, will be held from 2 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. at the American Museum of Science & Energy.
In a statement, Sue Cange, DOE’s environmental manager in Oak Rdige, said, “This public meeting allows us to increase transparency and explain our decision process as we plan future cleanup priorities. We expect this informative event will help the community understand our challenges so we can work in unison to achieve a clean Oak Ridge.”
DOE said the workshop would include overviews from Cange, the Chief Financial Office, and some of the project directors.
“After the presentations, the public will be able to ask questions or provide comment regarding future cleanup priorities in Oak Ridge,” DOE said in information distributed to the news media.
