Call Cliff or apply in person at Bob Ruwart Motors 2105 N. 16th St., Wheatland, WY 82201 1-800-262-3146 Meeting was called to order by Mayor Morrison at 2:00 p.m. John Corra, Director of Wyoming DEQ, explained that they are the administrators for air quality. He explained the process of how the current law was developed and the rules and regulations to implement it. Bob GilI-DEQ/AQD explained that current law allows that a waiver may be granted that allows burning without the setback distance as long as there are no complaints received. Mr. Gill explained that a very small number of communities burn. Most yard waste and vegetative matter is hauled to the landfill where it can be disposed of or burned in compliance with the setback law. Some other communities use composting. Mayor Morrison explained that current law requires a five hundred (500) foot setback space from homes or buildings in order to burn vegetative matter. The waiver obtained by the Town from DEQ waives that distance requirement. Cost for alternative methods of waste disposal were discussed. He explained that citizens are extended to the maximum financially due to the current water and sewer project. Additional costs for disposal of yard waste at the landfill, costs for transporting it and or collection costs by the town would be too much. Landfill costs will be increasing again in July. Councilman Scott AIIred stated it is a problem getting the material to a drop area and~that not everyone can haul it or get it hauled to be dropped off. Pres Workman asked about the emphasis placed on complaints and asked if studies are done in this area to see if burning is a real problem. He pointed out often farmers burning stubble outside town causes more smoke than in town burning. He reported on the history and purpose of the current ordinance and suggested rescinding the town ordinance. Jack Thatch expressed the need to dispose of garden waste by burning. Dan Anderson expressed concern of the time involved to haul the waste and the tremendous burden of relocating the waste from his property. He feels the extended time for burning seemed to help substantially. Jim Szlemko stated that Yellowstone Park fires are good for the park to clean out underbrush. If burning is good for the government, why not for the people? Mr. Corra explained that EPA federal rule requires visibility must improve in future years. Pollution control programs have been launched and smoke is part of these rules. Tables are used to calculate smoke on human health. Councilwoman Jodi Lindsay expressed disagreement with open burning. She understands it is a cheap, easy and convenient way to dispose of yard waste but is concerned for the individuals through- out town that must stay inside during spring or fall because they can't breathe outside. Discussion was held regarding past practices of scheduling open burning and problems of concentrated smoke with the reduction to only two days last fall. A longer period of time seemed to prevent the smoke concentration. Also discussed was the procedure for enforcing the local open burning, and the enforcement issues with regard to the waiver. Administrator Grant reported that in the rules the Air Quality Administrator has the right to grant or rescind a waiver but there are no criteria for what is considered. Mr. Corra stated they check on complaints and typically consider the complaints when considering the granting of a waiver. Concern was expressed that a complaint could be made with no data backing it up, but would be an impact on the waiver decision. It was explained that they do try to get complainants together to try and solve the problems. They encourage ways to accommodate the request as well as accommodate those with health problems. Discussion was held regarding options that could take care of the problem without cost to the citizens. Contacting the landfill board regarding a fee waiver or a reduced fee for delivery of yard waste was suggested. Recognizing that a larger window to burn may reduce negative health effects was discussed. Having the Town and citizens work together to accommodate neighbors with breathing problems by disposing of yard waste through alternate methods was also suggested. Councilman Dickson reported a meeting had been held to discuss solutions and anticipates more will be held. He encouraged input from those wanting to burn and those opposed to burning so both sides can help develop a viable solution. It was suggested that the state is trying to handle a problem that is very broad that perhaps should be handled locally. The state could offer suggestions but give burning back to the local jurisdiction to find solutions. Perhaps modification to the burning rule could be made if the community established certain criteria for burning and had enforcement procedures in place. Jim Szlemko reported gathering many signatures in support of burning. He suggested a waiver for burning for the entire year so there would be no great influx of smoke at any certain time. Criteria for burning could be wind speed and barometric pressure to check for inversions. He also suggested there are more damaging pollutants from automobiles than with burning. The meeting concluded with the idea of continuing to seek a solution to facilitate the citizens concerns while creating a supportive solution of protecting rights. Meeting adjourned at 4:00 p.m. Pending Approval: Mayor R.
