The longmont action alert, 8/24/20

This is what I wrote to each Longmont City Council member today:

Dear Council member …:

Please renew the contract with Boulder Air during this Tuesday’s council meeting. Although I live in Fort Collins, I think it is important to continue monitoring the air quality at the Longmont and Boulder stations. I and other Ft Collins residents will be urging our city council to support creating such monitoring stations here. In fact, there should be a network of such recording stations throughout the Front Range, because this technology developed by Dr. Helmig is the only way we are going to be able to tell how much of our ozone and VOC pollution is coming from oil and gas operations, as distinguished from vehicular traffic.

Thank you.

Rick Casey

As you will see when you go to the Longmont City Council webpage, you will have to email each member individually, in the popup form that is attached to their name. If you copy and paste your message though, it goes pretty fast. Good luck!

  1. I received a later reply from Polly Christensen:

    Mr. Casey,

    Thank you for taking the time to write. Please be assured that I will be voting for a continuance of AIR’s contract.

  2. I got this quick reply from Council member Marcia Martin:

    Thank you. I think Dr. Helmig’s contract is safe. I suggest you write to our Mayor at and ask him to send PRPA back to the drawing board. That is the issue at risk.
