Re: “Tighter enforcement of burn bans possible” (TNT, 12-10).
The “wood stove police” are going to spend tax money to ferret out those dastardly wood burners.
While critical services such as police and fire protection are being reduced, the clueless bureaucrats at the Puget Sound Clean Air Agency are proposing to increase enforcement officers from 12 to 75! They want to use infrared cameras for nighttime surveillance and clobber with stiff fines and fees the people trying to stay warm. All this for a problem that exists for “10 or so days every winter.”
One more example of government run amok. The inmates are truely running the asylum.
