The Fairbanks North Star Borough is issuing its first citation for an air quality violation, nearly a year after a program to monitor pollution was put in place.
“It either just happened recently, or it will happen first thing tomorrow morning,” Jim Williams, the Chief of Staff for FNSB Mayor Karl Kassel, said at a Borough Assembly meeting Thursday.
Williams said the Kassel Administration reached out to the Kellum Street individual being cited at least ten times since October.
He adds Mayor Karl Kassel wanted to be the first to make the call to take action.
“[Kassel] will continue to make the decision on fines to make sure that property owner have every single opportunity to be heard,” Williams said. “That specific property owner didn’t want anything to do with the borough.”
