I have found the time, between moving from Wildomar and preparing my former residence in Wildomar for close of escrow, to finally confirm Wildomar city councilmember Ben Benoit’s vote on AQMD Rule number 445, which prohibits the operation of your private fireplace on certain days designated by the AQMD, including today.
AQMD member Ben Benoit, representing the “Cities of Riverside” voted “aye” on Rule 445, which eliminates your private right to light your fireplace whenever you damn well please.
Please click on the following link to the minutes of the AQMD meeting on May 03, 2013 (and scroll down to page 10) , for confirmation:
If you rankle at heavy-handed government interference of your personal life, understand that this elitist mentality doesn’t start in Washington DC, it originates in small towns like Wildomar in feckless and small-minded politicians like Benoit, who learn early on to get along by going along. (Please note that the vote was unanimous so it would have taken courage to vote no on Rule 445).
