The panel will be moderated by Catskill Mountainkeeper’s Kate Hagerman and include Saugerties Town Supervisor Fred Costello, dump neighbor Mike Ferraro and environmental attorney Emily Svenson. Costello will update the community on the challenges the town has faced while trying to implement enforcement actions, Ferraro will give a history of the dump and Svenson will detail some of the state laws the dump is violating.
