Environmental Public Benefit (EPB) Funds Program
On August 6, 2014 at 6pm in Town Council Chambers/Suite Z, the Town Council will consider accepting $274,963 from the Great Basin Unified Air Pollution Control District for woodstove replacements. The Council will also be considering allocating a portion of these funds to the purchase of another new street sweeper. Due to the widespread benefit throughout town, including the reduction in potential structure fire hazards, staff is recommending that the entire amount be dedicated to woodstove replacements.
The staff report for this item will be available no later than August 1st on the Town's website
(please see the August 6th agenda).
If you have any questions or comments on this item, please contact Jen Daugherty, Senior Planner, at
