Hill's RAB consists of 24 people representing local communities; federal,
state, county and city governments; local sewer and water districts; civic,
business and environmental groups, the Air Force, and other interested parties.
RAB meetings are open to the public and advertised in local newspapers and on this website. The
RAB brings the following to the cleanup process:
- The RAB selects its own members.
- The RAB holds regular meetings, setting the agenda, meeting times, and locations. RAB members are asked to review and comment on draft documents and reports.
- The RAB creates its own mission statement and operating procedures.
As its name suggests, the RAB is an advisory board, not a policy-making board.
According to Superfund law, the Air Force holds the ultimate responsibility for
making decisions regarding the cleanup. However, the RAB will not be without
influence. Because the community will be involved early in the cleanup process
through the RAB, the communities' concerns will be understood early.
As progress is made toward a cleanup proposal, many of the
communities' concerns will have already been addressed, making the final
proposal more of a cooperative effort.
- The RAB is co-chaired by a representative of the community and a representative of the Air Force.
Environmental cleanup is taking place at Hill Air Force Base and in several surrounding
