Note: A copy of the August email sent to members of the Harrisburg NAACP Environmental Committee.
I hope you're well-rested from your time out of town.
I received confirmation (<Redacted>) that you, too, received the second email I sent to the Harrisburg Area Tenants United (GHTU). As stated, I sent the association two emails (July 20 and Aug. 24) and -- during the first half of the month -- a voicemail. Their voicemail states that they're short on volunteers, so I'll reach out to them once more to volunteer for the hotline for a shift each month.
In the meantime, I'm not sure of the direction of the Environmental Committee. It was only this month (August) that I received an email notification and attended my first monthly executive meeting. During the meeting, the <redacted> said <redacted> wants my monthly report to include the average cost of <redacted redacted> and the number of <redacted redacted> in the city.
I'll see what figures I can find, as well as the number of residential fires in recent years (say, three-to-seven) and the reported damage to residential property from firecrackers. By Sept. 15, I hope to send you a draft inquiry to the Fire Bureau about the feasibility of kids and kids-at-heart popping firecrackers in a controlled environment on scheduled days in the summer.
