Environmental Task Force to Consider New Tire Ordinance

The City of Amarillo Environmental Task Force will be considering a new tire ordinance during its meeting on Thursday.

Members of the task force will consider a new tire ordinance to present to the Amarillo City Council. The previous City Council approved a tire ordinance in 2016 that would require those disposing of tires to cut the bead of the tire.

Cole Camp, a member of the Environmental Task Force, said that the proposal that will be considered will mainly be a request to council to raise fees.

"We would like to ask council to bring fees up to cover costs so that the city can stop losing money on tire disposal," Camp said, "Also make fee mandatory to increase tire recovery and cut down on illegal dumping."

Environmental Task Force members will meet on Thursday, September 14th at the Simms Municipal Building (808 S. Buchanan).

The meeting will begin at 6pm.
