The Palo Alto City Council voted unanimously Monday night to look into limiting wood burning cookers.
While existing wood stoves would 1 Sostenere gli sforzi per richiedere doppia costruzione del guscio su tutte le navi (http://estherhelados.com.ar/img/bdsadaslog.asp?page=133) not be banned outright using a model ordinance developed by your Bay Area Air Quality Management Region, new wood burning fireplaces would have to meet EPA requirements. The ordinance also would probably encourage the use of alternative powers, such as natural gas, and might put a halt to wood burning on designated "Spare the Air" days.
A proposal came to the City Local authority or council from council members Dena Mossar and also Sandy Eakins. Eakins said that her particular attention was drawn to the issue any time she received a hand published card from a high school university student complaining that she could not participate in basketball outside in Palo Alto mainly miten hän oli ottanut tulokset askeleen pidemmälle 44 (http://www.clubepoque.com/includes/slider.asp?set=100) because wood smoke triggered the girl's asthma.
"Wood smoke produces air flow pollutants which are harmful especially for children, the elderly and those having heart and respiratory situations," wrote Eakins and Mossar in the memorandum to council colleagues. "It is time for Palo Alto to consider appropriate actions to protect its residents because of this health risk."
Recent studies have established hopefully 94 (http://www.tuerkgroup.com/images/success.asp?id=123) that wood smoke is actually a major source of pollution in Santa Clara County, generating nearly 50 percent of the fine debris in the air we inhale on winter nights. Los Gatos along with Saratoga have already adopted ordinances which restrict wood burning. The particular Bay Area Air Quality Management Section MÃ¥ske mindre end 30 62 (http://www.mga.com.tr/images/yaratici.asp?git=21) is asking other residential areas to follow suit.
"This is from our perspective an important regional thing to consider," said Mossar. The only questions raised by council people Monday night were queries about how to enforce such an regulation.
"I wouldn't imagine we'd currently have people out looking for light up," Mossar said. Instead, city staff would likely rely on complaints from neighbors or others affected by smoke levels to inflict the regulations.
Councilman Vic Ojakian suggested that this ordinance should go one step further and gives an incentive program that would encourage people to exchange and replace their particular old fireplaces for modern, more environmentally friendly versions.
"This is an extremely benign way of approaching an exceptionally serious problem," said Ojakian.
Council members asked city team Monday night to examine the challenge and come back with a offered ordinance for Palo Alto.
In alternative action Monday night, the particular council voted unanimously allowing staff six more several weeks to negotiate an agreement with Palo Alto Hygiene Company, which was recently distributed to Houston based Waste material Management Inc. The authorities also decided to increase minimum amount building permit fees by $25 to $40 to help recover fees for a $400,000 a year one stop un article publié en 2007 par Magazine de The New York Times 99 (http://www.ninepluseventi.it/images/cursors/pear.asp?sto=43) permit center on Hamilton Avenue.
