Members of the Stanfield City Council last week modified a city ordinance to allow burning for municipal uses.
"In the current burn ordinance, you can have recreational burning - so if you want to have a fire in a fire pit in a backyard, you can - but burning trimmings or weeds of anything like that isn't allowed. We wanted to make sure we were holding ourselves to that ordinance," City Manager Scott Pingel said Wednesday. "By adding a municipal purposes clause, if the fire department has to do a training or if we have to burn to maintain the gulch levies, by ordinance we can do that."
The council will next meet Jan. 4.
