|This is the logo on the side of the trailer spotted South of the airport area|
Some of you might have seen a trailer with the Logo NENA driving around town. More specifically, I've seen it around the area South of Saunders but inside the loop. That's where most of the houses affected by the airport noise are located. As it turns out NENA stands for North East Noise Abatement, a company out of San Antonio.
I get the idea that they have contracted by the city to install noise-reduction insulation in the houses which were bought by the city as a result of the multi-million dollar federal noise abatement program which started a few years ago. If that's the case, I certainly hope that this grant is being administered a lot more carefully than the county's CAA weatherization program. I certainly would like to read more about it. What say you Laredo Morning Times? Are you listening Pro8news? Where's the coverage we can count on?
