Loudon Passes Open Burn Regs

At Monday's Loudon City Council meeting, council passed on first reading regulations that would control open burning within the city. Differing from the county and Lenoir City, Loudon's open burn regulations will allow for the use of air curtains for open burning on large developments. The air curtain is a device that forces high velocity air into a fire causing a much hotter, cleaner and fast burning fire producing far less smoke and pollution. Other requirements would limit proximity to dwellings and no burning at night.

Councilman Gene Lambert requested that paragraph 12 be under the "Permit" section be removed.
