Maybe there is a reason John Hoeppner received a lukewarm response to his Wildfire Prevention Ordinance. It appears to be little more than a continuation of his personal vendetta against one of our town councilmen.
John is obviously unaware that Cave Creek has a great number of artists, craftspeople, blacksmiths, hobbyists as well as homeowners and contractors who frequently grind metal, cut metal or weld. They do not do this standing in a field of dry grass, but instead, work in their studios, garages or shops.
This is as safe as John barbecuing in his backyard.
We are all concerned about fire, but it’s time to stop scaring people with fake news.
