Meredosia board votes to ban burning barrels

Burn barrels are on their way out in the village of Meredosia.

The Meredosia Board of Trustees voted recently to reopen the burn area. The village burn area had been closed due to unapproved items such as furniture being dropped at the dump area. Village residents will be required to obtain the gate key from village hall, thus eliminating the use of burn barrels throughout the village. Trail cameras will be installed at the burn dump to prevent illegal use. &nbsp;&nbsp;<ahref=""><spanstyl... 13px; color: rgb(0, 0, 0);">To view more, please log in or subscribe to the digital edition.</span></a></p>
