FDL City Council Will Extend Recreational Fire Hours


The Fond du Lac City Council last night gave City staff the go ahead to make a change to the hours for fire pit burning. Staff will prepare an amendment to the City ordinance that would allow recreational fires until midnight on Fridays and Saturdays, and the night before a federal holiday. Council President Sam Meyer said it was a property rights issue and people should have the freedom and liberty to do what they want on their own property. He noted there were no time limits in Oshkosh and West Bend. The Council voted unanimously to have City staff draft the change to the ordinance and it will come back before the Council for approval. Also last evening the Council was informed of a couple of financing issues that will come back before them at their September 11th meeting. Early repayment of 2005 Wastewater Utility revenue bonds will save the City $17,500 in interest. Refinancing of 2002 and 2003 Wastewater Utility revenue bonds will save the City $521,000 in interest payments over the remaining 10 year term of the bond issues. That too will come back before the Council at their September 11th meeting.

Wish they would have just got rid of it all together. It's kind of ridiculous that the city had anything to do with it.

Does this mean that our outlandishly high water bills will go down????

Why not just get rid of the time limit completely? Its my yard, if I'm not bothering the neighbors with noise, it should be no one's business but my own how late I have a fire.

Forget the time limits! Why make more rules. Most fires at my house don't start till 10:00 PM and the neighbors are always invited.

it may be your yard but the smoke travels to other people's houses
