I would like to thank the homeowners of Meridian for helping to make the area more livable for our family, friends and neighbors during the leaf burning season.

Many residents have made the neighbor-friendly decision to compost or bag their leaves rather than burning them as they did several years ago. Many of our elderly who now age in place in their homes have breathing issues, as do asthmatics and children. Breathing the smoke from leaf fires can cause flareups of these conditions sending these neighbors to emergency rooms for breathing treatments.

Bagging and composting leaves shows you are a good neighbor and I, for one, thank you.
