Abandoned factory packed with toxic chemicals a few blocks from 3 schools

Abandoned factory packed with toxic chemicals:
Slinger - Dozens of drums and barrels containing thousands of pounds of hazardous and toxic chemicals are stacked inside an abandoned metal plating factory on Oak St. in the heart of the village - surrounded by homes and only a few blocks from three schools.
  • Should federal and state environmental agencies be required to notify neighborhood residents, schools, recreation and youth organization about toxic products nearby?  
  • Who should initiate legislation to protect residents, especially children from contamination by storage and use of harmful chemicals in their neighborhoods?
