Shelby County Mayor Mark Luttrell is working to improve the county's air quality. He has appointed a special committee to address ozone pollution standards. The mayor is quoted in a news release stating that the County was "notified months ago that Shelby County's air quality did not meet federal standards. That finding and the recent decision by the City of Memphis to stop vehicle emissions testing led to my decision to form this committee." Recommendations for corrective measures will be made to the mayor within the next few months.
