Tell us what you think.
Takoma Park will consider waiving its nuclear free zone legislation at Monday night's city council meeting to allow for HP computers to be brought into the Takoma Park Library. The fact that Takoma Park is a nuclear free zone represents the larger heart of the city. It likes to take a local approach to national and international issues. So we ask you: Do you think Takoma Park should waive its promise to be nuclear free to allow for the computers? Let us know in comments below.
Come out and speak up.
Could Takoma Park renege on its nuclear free promise? The Takoma Park City Council has been asked to waive the Nuclear Free Zone Act to get HP computers for Takoma Park Library. The act "prohibits the granting of an award, contract or purchase order, directly or indirectly, to any nuclear weapons producer and prohibits purchase or lease of products produced by a nuclear weapons producer," according to the legislation. The public will have their say, though. Residents will have the chance to speak up about whether they want to waive the nuclear free zone in favor of the computers at the Takoma Park City Council meeting on June 18 at 7:30 p.m. at the Takoma Park Auditorium.
