Fairbanks voters may choose wintertime pollution regulator

Posted: Wednesday, July 29, 2009

FAIRBANKS - Fairbanks voters may decide whether they want the borough or the state to run a program to fight wintertime air pollution.

The borough assembly will review a proposed ballot measure Thursday that asks whether the local government should administer an air quality program for the state.

The Fairbanks Daily News-Miner reported the plan would entice residents to upgrade old wood- and coal-fed home heating systems. The borough has tentative plans for a stove change-out program featuring rebates, tax breaks and fines.

Earlier this month residents at an assembly meeting pushed local leaders to resist mandates from environmental regulators.
