The first at which they will answer questions!

Air Quality Public Meeting details

email to Brad
This is a huge breakthrough.
I hope you can be at this meeting to ask some of the reasonable questions you have asked on air. It is crucial that Bexar County fill this meeting. That's the only way AACOG will understand people care.
The only reason AACOG will answer questions is they finally met their match in the form of some angry elected officials in Wilson County who didn't get to ask questions a few weeks ago in their public meeting. The AACOG web site has also said citizens can ask questions at these meetings. The web site doesn't say that questions will not be answered.
I represent Guadalupe County on two AACOG committees, and they wouldn't even allow me to answer a basic question a citizen asked about the difference in air pollution here and in Denver, Colorado (where I once lived in the Air Force).
Judge Marvin Quinney is a big AACOG booster, but they even managed to offend him. For the first time, he got to see one of my Power Point shows on what is wrong with the clean air plan. He also heard two of his commissioners complain about not being able to ask questions. At last week's AIR Executive Committee, Judge Quinney asked for help in responding to the questions that I have raised. They didn't even respond to his plea for help! Really amazing. The end result of this is that AACOG removed from the web site the fact citizens can answer questions.

Vehicle emissions testing – the $40 Inspection Tag – is a possibility under the area Clean Air Plan now being formulated (see Express-News story 5/29/2003 Clean-air strategies cautiously approved).

Website S.O.P.
Usually I clean out the day's headline links between 10 and midnight and load an abbreviated page for overnight. New stuff is normally uploaded between 8 and 10 a.m. and stays all day and evening.
Sometimes I add during the day but only occasionally. Weekends don't get much updating if any at all.
Previous headline links are always available (by month) in the Headline Archive in the left column, or you can keyword search the entire site with the button
