"Sasol announced plans for a voluntary property purchase program for residents in designated areas northwest and west of its existing facility in Westlake last month. The program will give eligible property owners and residents the option to sell their property to Sasol, and relocate to an alternative neighborhood, if they so choose. Sasol has appointed Community Interaction Consulting, Inc. (CIC), to administer the Program. CIC has more than 20 years of experience in administering best practice property purchase programs around the country," the release states.

"Sasol is committed to ensuring that the voluntary property purchase program is transparent, fair and addresses the needs and concerns of our neighbors," said Mike Thomas, Sasol Vice President for U.S. Operations. "The Program Information Center and website will help ensure eligible participants have the information and support they need to understand the features of the Program and how it will affect them so they can make informed decisions."

    By tonight, rain chances will stay low. We will have mostly clear skies late. Low temperatures will be in the low 70s. It will also feel muggy overnight, thanks to the humidity. There could be some areas of patchy fog in the early morning hours. Sunday will be another day with partly cloudy skies with very few showers popping up in the afternoon. Rain chances will remain at 20%, so that does not mean that we will not see any rain, just not very likely. Highs will be in the upper 80s.
