Self interest should motivate air-quality actions
April 29, 2004
De Soto is an often-overlooked part of the metropolitan area. That is not true in regards to air quality. De Soto, like the rest of Johnson County, is part of a six-county air-quality region. Unfortunately, the region is expected to be found out of compliance with new federal air quality standards later this year. De Soto is spared most to the consequences of metropolitan air pollution because prevailing winds generally move pollutants in the atmosphere in an easterly direction. De Soto residents, however, won’t be spared the consequences of regulations imposed to get the area into compliance with the new standards.

Although much of the five-square miles the city wanted to detach was part of the city’s 1999 annexation, it included properties De Soto annexed in the preceding three decades. The future relationship of the city and the fire district resurfaced when Johnson County Assistant County Administrator Hannes Zacharias convened a meeting earlier this month of the county’s rural fire districts and bordering cities.
