Read it(ordinance) and Weep!
June 07, 2010 | 12:24 AM

An example, as I read it, of why the May 24th ordinance needs changed: it prevents the Commissioners, in determining if a proposed burner poses health and environment threats, from considering any information except what the potential polluter provides! There would be a public hearing and the Commissioners would hear all citizens wanting to speak, but Section 7 C, referring to Sections 2 and 3, makes it impossible for Commissioners to use any information not supplied by the applicant, no matter when it's handed them, how damning it is, or who presents it unless it was also submitted by the applicant. Citizens can speak, but their words about health and environment, etc., must legally be ignored --no matter what! Why waste the electricity for a public hearing? Much of the rest of the ordinance is similarly deceptive.
