Residents urged to comply with law

Fire department
faces challenge
of illegal burns
By Tom Wearing

IMLAY CITY Imlay City Fire

Dept. officials are growing frustrated
with local residents who request burn
permits but fail to comply with the
guidelines stated in the permit.
Asst. Fire Chief Andrew Kustowski
voiced particular displeasure with those
who choose to disregard the limits set
forth by state and local ordinance which
clearly identify items that can and
cannot be burned.
