The Portmore Citizens' Advisory Council is urging the government to impose an environmental tax on the operators of Highway 2000.
Chairman of the Greater Portmore Joint Council, Howard Hamilton is suggesting that a percentage of the proceeds of the tax go to the development of the municipality.
He said he will be writing to the Environment Minister Robert Pickersgill and the operators of Highway 2000 to discuss the issue.
In the meantime, the Office of Disaster Preparedness and Emergency Management said it expects to receive a report today from the National Environment and Planning Agency on the mysterious substance that affected toll personnel last week.
ODPEM said it is also waiting on test results from samples taken from the area.
