Army to re-form Badger plant advisory board WISCONSIN STATE JOURNAL August 02, 2012BARABOO - The Army plans to disband and reorganize a citizen advisory board critical of its environmental cleanup efforts at Badger Army Ammunition Plant.
Joan Kenney, the Army's representative at Badger, said the changes aren't a criticism of the local officials and residents who sit on the Restoration Advisory Board.
Rather, she said, the changes reflect the Army at Badger not being in accordance with the rules established by the Department of Defense, which governs Restoration Advisory Boards.
Kenney said the shakeup of the board at Badger is to bring it in accordance with 2006 guidelines approved by the Department of Defense that require any RAB to represent all local parties and stakeholders interested in the environmental cleanup.
The Army released the results of a community survey to the board in May, and Kenney said 50 percent of the people surveyed either didn’t know about the board or felt it wasn’t representing their interests.
