Harold Ross v. SWCAA
Appeal of $100 penalty for burn violations
This case was an appeal of a $100 penalty for burning of prohibited materials in a no-burn zone. Appellant admitted to burning paper and non-vegetative matter in a fire, but claimed it was a first offense and that the penalty was not necessary. After hearing, the Board concluded that the air agency proved the violation had occurred and that the penalty was reasonable, given all circumstances.
