Subject: [CPEO-MEF] Ft. Ord (CA) burn - no relocation assistance
Army won't pay relocation cost
Fire smoke not issue, it says

Monterey Herald (CA)
November 3, 2007

In a change from two previous controlled burns of Fort Ord backcountry to clean up live explosives, the Army won't pitch in to pay temporary relocation costs for residents when it lights up brush land later this year.

The Army plans to burn about 300 acres of scrubland near Del Rey Oaks and Seaside as part of an ongoing cleanup of unexploded ordnance on the former base firing ranges. Using fire to clear the brush makes it easier and safer for workers.

The plan calls for separately torching two areas, of 164 and 131 acres, when optimum weather conditions ensure safe dispersal of the smoke. A final go-ahead on the burn plan is expected by Nov. 15 from Army and federal and state environmental officials.
