Lead Poisoning Averted

Good to read in today's Free Press that an alert health department employee spotted a potential health problem in a toy charm with high lead levels sold at Fletcher Allen's gift shop.

As a commissioner on Burlington's Board of Health, I'm glad that the city's Code Enforcement office has strict standards for environmental hazards. The board continues to support the city's lead abatement education program as it effects rental properties, though that nationally recognised effort has lost full funding.
