LOGAN, Utah (AP) -- The Bear River Health Department will use the Internet instead of electronic street signs to give air quality updates in Cache County this winter.
The updates will be posted on the department's website by 7 a.m. everyday and will also be distributed through Twitter and Facebook.
In previous years, two electronic signs on Logan's Main Street were used to alert people about air quality conditions. The Herald Journal of Logan reports that the signs cost about $4,000 to run each winter, although health department officials said cost was not a factor in eliminating them.
