SOLON– The third and final reading of a revised ordinance limiting the open burning of landscape waste is scheduled to be considered by the Solon City Council tonight (May 2).
In March, council members endorsed a proposal limiting the burning of yard and garden waste to three days a week between April 1 and May 25 and Oct. 1 through Nov. 25. If the revisions are adopted by the council, residents would be allowed to burn plant material generated on their property on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays from 7 a.m. until 7 p.m. during those periods.
At an April 18 meeting, council members passed the second reading 4-0 with no public comment. The change would go into effect after publication of the new law.
