Good for shareholders. They are aware, of course, that Glatfelter Paper is one of the worst polluters in York County, if not the worst. They have hundreds of violations settled with consent orders that the public and the town's people never hear about. The COs and decrees are published in the PA Bulletin, as a matter of record, months after they are signed. Usually, the Dept. of Environmental Protection, at the company's request will put in some nonsense about not issuing a news release. All these consent orders should be made public immediately. As a former communications professional for the previous-DER, I never agreed with that decision but I was told by administration that agreeing to the no release policy was a tool to get the companies to sign. There is another more effective tool--court. It costs more but it gets a better result.
