Don't trash environment to save budget, Peyton says

Published August 29, 2009 - The Florida Times-Union
Despite bad financial times, Jacksonville can't afford to backtrack on environmental protection, Mayor John Peyton told the audience at an environmental conference Friday.

Peyton urged hundreds of people at the city-sponsored meeting to tell City Council members they support ongoing city projects to reduce pollution entering the St. Johns River from unmanaged stormwater, failed septic tanks and excess fertilizer washed off lawns.
