Kamloops council has delayed making a decision about installing new air monitoring equipment at several locations at a cost of two thousand dollars.
The issue of concern to Councillor Donovan Cavers, who felt at that price, new equipment could be located around the city to ensure people know the air quality especially during wildfires.
“The beauty of these is you can access them in ten seconds through the purple air website, and it gives you a general idea of what’s going on throughout the entire community. So if you live downtown, maybe its really smokey, but you’re taking your kids to play soccer up in Aberdeen, and the air up there is totally fine. So that’s the beauty of this system.”
The issue will come back before council later.
