Logan Police Chief: current anti-idling ordinance not enforceable

Logan City has an anti-idling ordinance but Logan City Police Chief Gary Jensen told the Logan City Council Tuesday night that the ordinance at this time is probably not enforceable.

Council chair Karl Ward said he is concerned about approving an ordinance that is not being enforced and might have little to no effect on actually reducing idling.

Dr. Rob Davies, a member of the city’s Renewable Energy and Conservation Advisory Board is also associated with the Utah Climate Center at USU. He said earlier Tuesday that idling creates bad air and it can have horrific impacts on young children.

It appears that the the wording of the city’s idling ordinance will be changed at a future meeting.
