burning in a fireproof trash burner or incinerator with a metal fireproof
screen of not more than one inch mesh, and located at least 20 feet from all
buildings. All contained fires are to be built after 7:00 a.m., and completely
extinguished by 8:00 p.m. and attended continuously until completely
extinguished. Violations of this code can result in fines up to $500.

had a difficult time in finding locations to push the snow. In order to keep
streets and alleys clear, it was necessary to utilize vacant properties as
locations to push excess snow.
There being no further business to come before the board,
motion by Rydl to adjourn. Second by Stauffer. All ayes.
