TRP Task Force Meeting
Air Quality Department, Bob Huhn, PIO
The Maricopa County Board of Supervisors appoints up to 15 qualified candidates to serve two-year terms on the Travel Reduction Program Regional Task Force. The Task Force meetings are open to the public and are usually held every four weeks. It’s during those meetings that employer/school survey results are reviewed and the related plans are officially approved or rejected. In addition, the Task Force will examine reports from TRP office staff on compliance delays and determine if enforcement action should be initiated. While fines are very rare, failure to comply with a Task Force request can result in civil penalties of up to $300 per day. Failing to meet the SOV targets is not a reason for an organization to be fined.

Public Workshop
Air Quality Department, Bob Huhn, PIO
The Maricopa County Air Quality Department is holding a public workshop to discuss the draft 2011 Periodic Emissions Inventory for Ozone Precursors, published in January 2014.

The inventory includes emissions estimates for volatile organic compounds (VOC), nitrogen oxides (NOx) and carbon monoxide (CO). Emissions are calculated for both Maricopa County and the eight-hour ozone nonattainment area. Annual totals as well as season-day emissions are provided for all source categories.

The emissions inventory report will undergo a 30-day public review period. The document is available in electronic format (PDF files) on the department’s website (see link below).

The department is accepting written comments on the draft emissions inventory report through the close of business on Friday, February 21, 2014.

The public workshop is an informal meeting for all interested parties, is free of charge, and requires no advance registration or RSVP.

*All visitors to the MCAQD offices at 1001 N. Central Ave, Phoenix, AZ are kindly requested to check in at the reception area in Suite 125.
