During their next council meeting Wednesday, December 20, council members would impose a moratorium for a period of 12 months on any facility that converts, or attempts to convert, pyrolysis, gasification or combustion of tires, plastics and electronic waste in the city.
During this 12 month period, council will look into the environmental impact, as well as the public health concerns surrounding SOBE Thermal Energy's plans to use tire scraps to generate heat for downtown businesses
