He added the proposed will be much bigger than originally planned.  Mr. Meyer noted the proposed will include: a maintenance building, two offices, a reception counter, employee break-room, and an education center. He added the entire site is approximately 7.5 acres and the stormwater will be directed to a small pond that will then be sent to the Southwest Treatment Plant for treatment.  Mr. Meyer noted the anticipated final cost of the construction will be about $3 million and by using existing materials and staff,approximately $1 million will be saved.

 

 

 

An opportunity was given for citizens to express their views.  With no speakers, the discussion was closed.

 

 

Pseudoephedrine Prescription Requirement

Sponsor: Stephens.  Council Bill 2013-127. A general ordinance amending the Springfield City Code, Chapter 78, Offenses and Miscellaneous Provisions; Article VI, Offenses Against Public Health and Safety, by adding one new section requiring a prescription for the purchase of methamphetamine precursor drugs.

 

 

 

Dan Wichmer, City Attorney, gave a brief overview of the proposed. He noted the proposed was being brought to Council after consideration by the Community Involvement Committee.  He added the proposed would require a prescription for any product including pseudoephedrine (PSE).  Mr. Wichmer noted the proposed only deals with over the counter sales.  He added the aforementioned reviewed the issue of items containing PSE being “broken” to be used to make methamphetamine.  The Police Department believes that all items containing PSE’s can be broken, so the proposed would require a prescription for all PSE products.  Mr. Wichmer noted there is also a provision dealing with knowingly selling PSE products without a prescription.  He added there will be penalties for such sales.  Mr. Wichmer noted similar ordinances have been enacted in other communities within the State.

 

Councilwoman Rushefsky asked for clarification regarding the term “broken”.  Mr. Wichmer responded that term referred to the ability to extract the PSE from products containing other ingredients.

 

Paul Williams, Chief of Police, noted the number of methamphetamine labs in the City has drastically increased over the five years.  He added there have been 25 lab incidents so far this year.  Chief Williams noted the community safety hazards associated with meth labs include: dangerous chemicals, explosive and flammable materials, and toxic fumes.  He added the majority of clandestine labs discovered have been the “shake and bake” labs, which have a greater risk of explosion and fire.  Chief Williams noted his department estimates the cost to clean up a meth lab at approximately $3,000.  He added PSE is the key ingredient in meth.  Chief Williams noted PSE can be extracted from any product containing it.  He added that due to the lack of a Statewide solution for this issue, local communities have taken action.  Chief Williams expressed his belief that many of those communities have seen significant decreases in meth lab incidents.  He added the proposed ordinance does not allow for exemption of any product containing PSE, but that amendment could be made at a later date if one is found to not be able to be “broken”.

 

Councilman Hosmer asked Chief Williams what he attributed the lack of success of the influx system to.  Chief Williams responded the system tracks a person, not the number of people a person sent into the store to buy PSE products.  He added offenders find a way to go around the system and therefore this system is ineffective.

 

Councilwoman Rushefsky asked why this bill is needed if the number of meth labs has gone down from this time last year.  Chief Williams responded decreasing is one thing, eliminating is another.  He expressed his belief that the proposed could help to eliminate the issue.

 

Councilman Compton asked if any surrounding states have implemented laws such as the proposed.  Chief Williams responded in the past two years Oklahoma, Kansas, Arkansas, and Tennessee have all tried to do statewide prescription only ordinance or statutes just like Missouri has.  He added all of them have met with opposition and failed on the State level.  Chief Williams noted Arkansas did pass a statute that gives the pharmacist the authority to deny the sale of PSE to someone they believe is buying it inappropriately.

 

Councilman Burlison asked if the proposed would do anything to assist with the meth coming into Springfield from Mexico.  Chief Williams responded the proposed would affect the meth lab issue and hopefully decrease meth usage.

 

Councilman Carroll asked if a felony conviction or the death of you or your family members isn’t a deterrent, how would a drive to another city to purchase PSE products be a deterrent.  Chief Williams responded Springfield is the hub of Southwest Missouri.  He expressed his belief that if the proposed is enacted other communities will enact similar ordinances.

 

 

 

An opportunity was given for citizens to express their views.

 

The following citizens spoke in opposition to the proposed: Dave Myers, Jim Moody, Karinda Thompson, and Melanie Bach.  They each expressed their belief that the proposed would not affect the methamphetamine problem, but would cause financial concerns for citizens in need of pseudoephedrine products because they would need to visit a doctor for a prescription.

 

Nan Holland spoke in support of the proposed.  She expressed her belief that the proposed would greatly benefit the community by helping to remove the threat of dangerous methamphetamine labs.

 

Councilwoman Rushefsky asked Mr. Moody for clarification regarding how his organization, the Consumer Healthcare Products Assocation, relates to the pharmaceutical industry.  Mr. Moody responded the pharmaceutical industry is represented by Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America (PhRMA).  He added he does not represent PhRMA.  Mr. Moody noted his organization represents the companies who sell over-the-counter drugs.

 

Councilman Burlison asked Ms. Thompson for clarification regarding where she gets her information on the creation of methamphetamine.  Ms. Thompson responded she researched the procedure on the Internet.

 

With no further appearances, the discussion was closed.
