Bonfire of the superfluities

Tired of weeding? Burn the damn things. Or not. V-board looks over an ordinance “to allow the use of open fire to manage native landscaping.” Tonight, at V-hall. It’s first on the agenda, right after new commission appointments, which come after prime-time premiere (First Reading) of building-code revisions as reviewed by the headless Building Codes Advisory Commission. Don’t miss it.

To have your weeds and the like approved for burning, however, you need permits from the Illinois Employment Prevention Agency, known familiarly as EPA, and the Cook County Department of Environmental Control, known hardly at all. With these in hand — and it should be fun getting them — you get a “free” one from the OP Fire Department. All this to start a fire in your back yard.
