The Florida Osteopathic Medical Association has filed the above comments with Hernando County opposing the CEMEX application to mine on Cortez Boulevard near Brooksville. FOMA is the largest statewide organization representing osteopathic physicians of all specialties and the care they provide to countless Florida citizens.
Due to the public health concerns outlined in their letter, FOMA is opposed to CEMEX’s application for a comprehensive land use amendment to open 738 aces of land in Hernando County for open pit industrial mining.
The association also made a donation of five hundred dollars to Neighbors Against Mining for the legal fund to oppose the CEMEX project. Neighbors is very thankful for this donation which will help us reach our goal of protecting Hernando County from this bad deal.
