The burning issue of the week: McVoy on crematoria in the City

This was in response to the public comment portion of last Tuesday's (7/14) City Commission meeting. The major issue, as reported in a previous post, was the number of crematoria that we have in Lake Worth and emissions from them. Here, Commissioner McVoy puts on his scientist hat and tells us about a Swedish product that is available to clean up the smoke from these facilities.

Apparently, these facilities have been here a long time. They are not currently allowed in the city. It does make me wonder, however: Didn't we have a prominent former Mayor that was a mortician? He served in the 70s and 80s. That could explain why we have a concentration of these in Lake Worth. Mr. Dorsey, are you listening?
