As a response to public concerns about air quality, the City plans to ask the Ministry of the Environment to install and maintain a new air-quality monitor.
In a report to Council from the Environmental Advisory Committee, Community Economic Development Director Alan Mason said committee members were concerned that “the public was unable to obtain air quality reports in Revelstoke this past summer.”
“Revelstoke used to have two air quality monitors in the community, but the Ministry removed the last monitor from the roof of Fire Hall in 2013 due to provincial funding reductions,” Mason said in his report. “For health reasons and to assist Council and staff make informed decisions about certain types of development applications (e.g. gravel extraction), the committee feels it is important that local residents are able to obtain air quality reports in the community.”
This request has no financial implications for the City, he said.
