Chamber denounces TV news report, local officials’ stance on lake level and nuclear plant safety

The Granbury Chamber of Commerce has issued a statement critical of local public officials who have been voicing concerns about whether low lake levels could impact safety in the event of an emergency at the nuclear power plant in Glen Rose. “It is the consensus of our Board that there are more advantageous, proactive and collaborative ways for our community to address lake level concerns than for public officials to publicly question the safety of the nuclear power plant through the media,” a statement from Chamber President Mike Scott, issued late Friday (April 12), said. Granbury City Council members and the city manager are planning a trip to meet with officials at the Nuclear Regulatory Commission’s national headquarters in Maryland. The alleged safety threat was recently the focus of a news report by a Metroplex television station.
