DORAL, FL – City of Doral Mayor, Christi Fraga, together with council members, Maureen Porras and Rafael Pineyro, as well as the District 5 School Board member, Danny Espino, have been visiting Covanta, the Waste-to-Energy Plant affected by a fire on Feb.12, since last week in order to inspect the magnitude of the damage and its consequences.
They have also visited different residential areas and commercial premises to personally listen to those impacted by this accident.
Motivated by City of Doral residents who are concerned about this incident, Mayor Fraga has been emphatic in stating she will not stop working until she sees the definitive removal of said incinerator outside the city.
In line with this purpose, the City of Doral leader requested to Miami-Dade commissioners to come to the Waste-to-Energy Plant so they can witness by themselves how extensive and serious the problem is. She already started this task by personally calling each one of them to ask them to coordinate said inspection.
“This crisis has opened up the opportunity to reopen the debate about removing this plant, which has been so vividly rejected by the residents of our community,” Fraga said.
