FDL City Council Approves Change To Recreational Fire Hours


Both the Fond du Lac Fire and Police Chiefs Wednesday night expressed some concerns about extending the hours for recreational fires in the City. Police Chief Bill Lamb says they are trying to spend less time on lower priority issues and responding to a call about someone whose recreational fire is burning after hours would be one of them. However he says it won’t create a tremendous burden on the department. Fire Chief Pete O’Leary says when they respond to such calls it can get confrontational and they usually have police go along. In the end the Council unanimously passed the change to the ordinance which will allow recreational fires until midnight on Fridays and Saturdays and the night before a federal holiday. Council President Sam Meyer says he values the chief’s opinions, but this is something citizens wanted. He says if there is a problem with the change it’s something they can take up again.

I still don't understand why this is such an issue. As long as it's not endangering someones life or home, why bother?

This is something Sam Meyer wanted
and swayed the council's vote with his facebook page.

What do we need a law for at all? If the fire isn't unattended and no one is creating a noise violation, then I don't see why a bonfire should have a time limit.

My Husband and I both have COPD and the smoke hanging in the air sets our lungs wheezy and short of breath more so when the air is humid. It gets old in a hurry to say the least
