The summer camp at the Wedgewood Community Center is being moved to another location because of the recent air quality alert.

Commissioner Lumon May has requested that the Community Center be shut down for ten days until all air quality tests are completed.
   
The summer camp will be moved to the Brownsville Community Center next door to Brownsville Assembly of God.
   
Thursday afternoon, the Escambia County Commission will host a public hearing on putting a temporary stop for the permitting or re-permitting of borrow pits.
   
County leaders want some time to figure out how to better regulate the sites.

Commissioner Lumon May says, "quite frankly, we've done a poor job in regulating and understanding, so we have a responsibility to citizens to make sure we have all the mechanisms in place to make sure people are abiding by the rules and regulations that have been established".

The public hearing will be Thursday at 5:30 pm in the County Commission Chambers.Wedgewood Community Center summer camp moved after toxic air report
