Cold winter weather is quickly ending, along with another Check Before You Burn season. Every year the program begins November 1 and finishes at the end of February. It aids in reducing air pollution by issuing a daily wood-burning advisory to let residents know what, if any, wood-burning devices may be used. According to the San Joaquin Valley Air Pollution District, residents made a positive impact on air quality during this brisk season compared to prior years.
The 2018 policy conference is hosted by the San Joaquin Valley Regional Policy Council, representing eight counties within the San Joaquin Valley including Kern, Tulare, Kings, Fresno, Madera, Merced, Stanislaus and San Joaquin. This forum provides an excellent avenue for our Valley to communicate on regional issues that impact the entire San Joaquin Valley region. Issues such as transportation, air quality and state and federal advocacy for community priorities will be covered at this conference.
Sponsorship and registration information will be available soon. Please contact Cindy Malekos at (209) 525-4634 or firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
