Keene Wetlands Vote Is August 1

At its August 1 meeting, the Keene city council will vote on whether to save wetlands. The meeting starts at 7 p.m. According to the federal government, wetlands “trap floodwaters, recharge groundwater supplies, remove pollution, and provide fish and wildlife habitat.” That quote is from:

On July 24, a Keene city council committee voted 3 - 2 in favor of a law that would save wetlands. The law won’t take effect unless the full council approves it. Opponents say it will cost landowners because they won’t be able to pave their wetlands.
