Many people like the smell of burning leaves. Many others, however, find the smoke from piles of burning leaves to be offensive.
In fact, that smoke causes a serious risk for people who have lung diseases or any other type of breathing problem.
The city recently received a number of complaints about the burning of leaves, with the majority of those coming from a large haze created from burning in Vandalia's parks on the day of a high school football game.
City officials have again agreed to revisit the leaf-burning issue, and have contacted officials in other communities to see how their towns handle leaf disposal.
