City Joins Regional Effort on Air Quality

February 27, 2008

KELLER, TEXAS– Last January, The Keller City Council rejected a policy that calls for cities to replace 2003- and older-model vehicles with new vehicles that put out 25 percent less pollution, according to the Fort Worth Star Telegram. But the City has now approved a new resolution supporting the policy, according to the Fort Worth Star Telegram.

The Clean Fleet Vehicle policy was adopted in 2005 by the Regional Transportation Council, the transportation planning body for the North Central Texas Council of Governments. Since then, the council has been calling on cities to adopt the policy to show their support for a regional approach to clean air. So far, at least 46 cities, four counties, eight school districts, and four transportation groups have adopted resolutions supporting the policy.

The resolution was reconsidered and changes in the policy’s language were made, including language preventing the council from making decisions in the best interests of Keller if needed. The council voted 4-1 in support of the amended policy.

The City was already meeting some requirements in the Clean Fleet Vehicle policy — mainly replacing its older-model vehicles with newer vehicles with fewer emissions.
