Air Quality

The Board of Health hopes to raise awareness of the importance of air quality.  Air quality is is important for people of all ages but in particular, small children, the elderly, and those individuals with respiratory problems, asthma, and other compromising health conditions.   It is important to work together by individually being cognizant and responsible when it comes to polluting the air.   Vehicles produce harmful exhaust that has an adverse effect on the environmental health of the community.  Fortunately, most states have - and enforce - anti-idling laws and limits; for additional information, see the 'Cars, Trucks, and Vehicles' section under Air Quality and see the links below:
