Letter to the Editor: Air quality suffers

— To the editor:

Fall is such an enjoyable time of year. Too bad our air quality suffers due to backyard burning of leaves and debris. See for yourself by overlooking the city from any vantage point.

We have the topography that traps bad air when the wind is light and yet that’s when we allow virtually unlimited burning. When we have out of town visitors we would like to sit outdoors, but not now...the air smells!
