Should Vandalia ban the burning of leaves?

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.
