East Texas Clean Cities Coalition Established

East Texas cities along with area businesses have joined together to bring you cleaner air.  Today was the official designation of the East Texas Clean Cities Coalition.  Representatives from local, state and national government were on hand to sign a memorandum declaring East Texas's commitment to clean air.
  Many East Texas city agencies are already using alternative fuel vehicles to reduce pollution.  Tyler Mayor Joey Seeber says this is just one in a step of many towards cleaner air.  "These are reasonable steps that we can take to make sure we are not polluting our air anymore than we need to, and that we are doing the kinds of things we need to promote clean air," he says. "That's the reason we joined with other governments and business in East Texas to continue to make sure that we have a beautiful place to live."
  The East Texas Clean Cities Coalition says there are 460 alternative fuel vehicles currently in East Texas.
  They want to raise that number to 1,100 in the next 5 years.
