Develop laws to regulate smoke

January 3, 2019

It seems that there is a total disregard for the health of people living in Douglas County. Many have lung problems for various reasons, like Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease from unwanted smoke. Eliminating or reducing smoke from burning debris, trash and bonfires would help greatly.

To accomplish this, the county and the city councils would have to pass laws that prohibit burning when there is a stagnant air condition or advisory.

The law would have to create a position that would have legal power and the will to enforce it. Maybe you could get ideas from Eugene.
