First of many air quality meetings underway

Public hearings about a state plan to reduce air pollution are scheduled to start Thursday in Northern Utah. Utah Division of Air Quality director Bryce Bird says the hearing will help people understand the proposed steps to bring air quality into compliance with federal laws. The first hearing will be held in Logan starting at 2 p.m. at Utah State University’s Widtsoe Hall room 007. So who should attend? Lemon says elected officials should plan to come because they are the ones who will be implementing any plans that are ultimately approved. “But anybody in the community that has an interest in what we are going to do as far as trying to improve air quality on bad air days is welcome and ought to be a part of that,” Lemon says. Lemon says those attending can park in either the Big Blue or Aggie Parking Terraces. Subsequent public hearings will be held all over the state.
