During the February 12, 2019 meeting of the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors, Supervisor Janice Hahn recognized the City of Paramount for winning the Model Community Achievement Award from the South Coast Air Quality Management District (SCAQMD).
The City received the award for its efforts to address air quality issues and lower hexavalent chromium emissions since 2016. The award honors public agencies and/or private entities who have delivered environmentally friendly projects or helped improve the health of their communities.
“I want to congratulate my friend Mayor Diane Martinez, Vice Mayor Tom Hansen, and the whole City of Paramount for your efforts in helping improve the quality of life for your residents,” said Hahn. “Your award is well-deserved.”
“The past two-and-a-half years have been a time of education for us regarding air quality issues,” stated Mayor Martinez. “We worked tirelessly with numerous agencies, including the County and South Coast AQMD, to protect the health of our community while maintaining economic prosperity. On behalf of the City of Paramount, we are honored to receive this recognition from Supervisor Hahn and the Board.”
