Huka/SMG proposal to run Saenger is on the table again. Huka says they already have at least ten performances ready to finalize for the remainder of 2013, and at least 64 so far for next year. Those possibilities could be lost if the City does not take action as soon as possible. The Saenger will be shut down October 1 if no decision made pursuant to the City’s agreement to finance it for one year.
Tarsands are already shipping through metro Mobileâ€™s residential neighborhoods and downtown business area, with plans to eventually increase to more than 120 carloads of tar sand oil per day. That translates to more than 2 million gallons of oil entering the city every day. The danger to the community far outweighs any potential benefit.
A series of permits have been granted in 2011/2012 that could make Mobile a key U.S. delivery point of Canadian tarsand oil for export to Asia and Europe, including the expansion of the Asphalt Company’s storage facility to hold millions of gallons along the Mobile River and beneath the watershed that supplies drinking water for the City of Mobile.
