PETITION TO MERGETo the Iowa Emergency Response Commission: The Chickasaw County Local Emergency Planning Committee (or ChickasawCounty Board of Supervisors acting as the Local Emergency Planning Committee) petitions the Iowa Emergency Response Commission to merge with the proposed Northeast Iowa Regional Emergency Planning Committee. The area of the Planning District will consist of Butler, Bremer, Allamakee, Howard, Grundy and ChickasawCounties in Iowa.The reason for the merger is that alone, our county cannot adequately plan for, respond to, train, or mitigate the accidental release of extremely hazardous substances in our communities. The benefits from such a merger would be to protect the citizens of our community by pooling and making better use of available resources in planning, training, mitigation and response with those of other counties in our area. We would like for this change to take place by September 28th, 2006. /ss/ Ken Rasing, County LEPC Chairperson;/ss/John L. Huegel, CountyBoard of Supervisors; Attest: /ss/ Judy A.
