Garden refuse facility proposed as fire solution

Reader points out problem with fire allowances in Langford

It is high time that Langford stops monthly burning. The first of the month we could not go outside as so much smoke from one house burning branches and limbs.

Langford has multi-million dollar outdoor and indoor recreation facilities plus numerous parks, playgrounds and walking trails and still two days a month for eight months of the year the people can have huge open fires.

These create heavy smoke where sometimes you cannot see out your window and when driving cannot see an intersection. One with asthma or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease cannot even go outside.

Answer to problem – no fires.

Develop a collection facility for garden refuse like the other communities have done.

 

Let’s get with it Langford.
