Cache Valley Air Quality - What Should We Do?

Thursday, January 5

Cache Valley’s air quality problem has become a hot topic. Logan City Council and School District officials are pushing the county to take action. And some think the problem is being unduly politicized, while nearly everyone agrees that something needs to be done. But what? We’ll talk about air quality issues in Utah with particular focus on Cache Valley and northern Utah. Our guests will include Logan City Councilman Herm Olsen, Cache County Executive Lynn Lemon, State Representative Ronda Menlove, and Bryce Bird, Director of the Utah Division of Air Quality.

And in the last segment of the show we’ll talk about Andrea, the indestructible cat we’ve been hearing about with West Valley City Community Preservation Director, Lane Morris.
