Concerned Citizens sets April 2 meeting in bid to carry on work 

Olean Times Herald, March 5, 2024 —

 OLEAN — Cattaraugus County Concerned Citizens, environmental watchdogs for more than 30 years, is looking for new blood to carry on their crusade for clean water and land. 

A meeting at Olean Public Library Monday night seeking ideas and new recruits was live streamed on Zoom, but drew more current members than people looking to help provide new leadership. 

Moderator Kathy Boser of Allegany, one of several former Concerned Citizens presidents who are still active in the group and attended the meeting, listed many of the group’s accomplishments since it was formed in 1991 to help fight the proposed Farmersville landfill. 

Boser noted most of the remaining members were getting to the age where they want to turn over the group to new leadership, dissolve or merge with another group.
