Air district, nonprofit to co-host event

CHOWCHILLA — The San Joaquin Valley Air Pollution Control District and the nonprofit Valley Clean Air Now will be hosting a Tune In and Tune Up car clean-up event at Chowchilla’s fairgrounds from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. today.

The free event is a part of a vehicle emissions clean-up program that identifies and helps repair older, out-of-tune vehicles that impact the air quality throughout the Valley.

Area drivers who have had their car for at least six months will receive a free vehicle emissions test. If the vehicle doesn’t pass the test, but can be repaired, the driver will receive a voucher for up to $500 in emission-related repairs at a participating STAR-certified smog check station.

In addition to testing, there will be a car-care clinic and health and safety fair at the site with educational booths sponsored by local nonprofit agencies. Attendees will also be able to enjoy free food and music from 9 a.m. until supplies run out...
