Draft Self-Reporting Policy Workshop

The Maricopa County Air Quality Department has scheduled a public workshop to discuss a proposed Self-Reporting Policy on Thursday, August 30, 2012 at 1:30 pm in the 9th Floor Classroom at 1001 N. Central Avenue, Phoenix, AZ 85004. 

A copy of the draft Self-Reporting Policy is currently available on the department’s website here.  

The purpose of the proposed policy is to encourage greater compliance with Maricopa County Air Pollution Control Rules and Regulations.  It promotes a higher standard of self-policing by providing mitigation of all or a portion of the civil penalties for violations that are voluntarily discovered and promptly disclosed and corrected.  The proposed policy is consistent with the Arizona Revised Statutes Title 49 Chapter 10 Environmental Audit Privilege.

In order to enhance the discussion and cost savings, as well as support the county’s sustainability initiative, information will be electronically displayed during the public workshop. If you prefer a hardcopy of the documentation, please print the information from the website address above to bring with you to the meeting.

The public workshop is free of charge and no advance registration or RSVP is required. The public workshop is an informal meeting for all interested parties to discuss the proposed changes. The purpose of the public workshop is to review the proposed policy and receive comments from the public on the proposed Self-Reporting Policy.  Members of the public may provide oral or written comments to the department. 

Comments on the proposed policy will be accepted until Friday, September 14, 2012 at 5:00 p.m. 

Additional information on the proposed policy may be obtained by contacting Jo Crumbaker at 602-506-6705 or by e-mail at jcrumbak@mail.maricopa.gov.
