The air quality ordinance, which has been introduced to the county by the State Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ), has been discussed with Franklin County Commissioners and surrounding county cites for several months, and last Wednesday night was no exception as the Clifton City Council reviewed the ordinance, without a vote of acceptance.
Although Mayor John Gailey said a solution is needed to improve air quality, council wanted to wait for what their attorney called minor changes before casting a vote. This ordinance, which pertains to wood-burning stoves and wood not safe to burn, such as treated wood, would not affect those whose only source of heat was a wood stove, or who would have hardships in using alternative heat.
Council will review the revised ordinance at their June meeting, and will then set a date for a public hearing.
