Some burning complaints in Sunbury

Wood burners causing some irritation in Sunbury

 

SUNBURY– The burning issue of legal, outdoor wood burners, popped up again last evening in Sunbury. The city council heard from residents who are concerned about open burning. Mayor David Persing said council will start to decide the issue at their next meeting. The next city council meeting will be held on July 22 at 6:15pm.

Persing said the city needs to decide which burners are legal–and which are not. He said one factor will be who built the burner, “Whether you buy it at Coles or you build it yourself…the biggest problem really is people going out and building their own things and making fire pits out of them clearly that’s illegal in the City of Sunbury and always has been.” (Sarah Lagerman)
