Fire pits may be allowed in Greensburg

first_imgGreensburg, IN—During Monday evening’s Greensburg City Council meeting,  the Council approved the first reading of the ordinance that will allow fire pits in the city limits but with several restrictions.  This is meant for fire pits that can be purchased or homemade pits that are made out of masonry blocks and can be no larger than 3 feet in diameter and 2 feet in depth. There are also restrictions listed for gas-starter fire pits.  Mayor Josh Marsh reminds residents that fires aren’t meant to be a nuisance to your neighbors. No brush fires, trash burning, tires, or other types of cleanup fires.  This ordinance is intended for use of firewood and starters for a small backyard fire. Similar ordinances have come across the Council’s table in the early 2000s but were denied.  The current ordinance has been in effect since the 1970s that bans all burning in the city.last_img
