It took two attempts, but Preston City officials finally passed a woodburning ordinance Monday night on a split, two-two vote with Mayor F. Lee Hendrickson breaking the tie in favor of the new law.
The council has discussed the ordinance for several weeks.
City attorney Clyde Nelson drafted the new rules after he met with Dayton attorney Steve Fuller and Franklin County prosecutor Todd Garbett.
The Franklin County Commission plans to approve a similar measure at their June 25 meeting.
“We all need to be on the same page regarding the ordinance,” said Nelson at Monday’s city council meeting. “All municipalities in the county, as well as the county itself, need to have similar wording.”
