Dear Community Associations,
The Office of Environmental Quality is working on a new air quality program that focuses on reducing emissions from lawnmowers. According to the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality, the engines in gas-powered lawn equipment pollute more than car engines!

This program allows Dallas residents to trade in their gas mowers for electric mowers at a 50% discount. Program requirements are as follows:

All mowers MUST be in working condition and emptied of gas and oil in order to receive the discount. Participants must be residents of Dallas and show proof of residency. Participants must make a reservation with Nicole Cooper at 214-670-6646 or email: Nicole.cooper@dallascityhall.com. For more information about the Neuton Mower, visit www.NeutonPower.com.

The event information is as follows:
When: Saturday, June 21
Time: 9am-3pm (or while supplies last; only 400 movers available)
Where: Dallas City Hall - Horseshoe Parking Area (1500 Marilla St., Dallas, TX, 75201)
