Kudos to Langford council for burning bylaw

Paying extra for municipal disposal system not the way to go

Re: Langford’s new burning regs aim to improve air quality for everyone (News Gazette, Oct. 3)

A big thank you to those on the Langford council who voted to put Langford residents’ health and the environment first and take the big step to modify the burning bylaws.

I understand that it will inconvenience some who will now have to pay to dispose of garden waste they used to burn, however due to the drastic increase in new homeowners, Langford’s property tax revenue has also increased exponentially keeping annual taxes often thou-sands of dollars less than other municipalities.

I would rather pay for the garden waste I need to dispose of rather than have everyone’s taxes increased for a municipal disposal program.
