Air Quality Study Suggestion

At the air quality meeting Feb. 19, 2014 the Town Mgr. Ray Simms said no studies or records have been completed on the increases of hospital and physician visits and the effects of certain health issues (lung, heart, stroke, thoracic, cancer) during the worst air quality months compared to other months.

I suggest that during this five year period of noncompliance improvement (especially since the Town is courting a biomass plant and a biofuels plant that will drastically increase hazardous particles in the air) studies be completed and the results shared with the citizens of Lakeview and surrounding areas. The economy is not just about businesses.
