Maplewood City Council Policy & Politics


Wood Smoke

The city has received many phone calls and e-mails in recent weeks about the wood smoke task force, and fears that there will be a ban on wood fires in Maplewood.

No law has been proposed to ban wood fires in Maplewood, recreational or otherwise. I wouldn't support such a ban, I don't believe anyone on the city council would support it, and the wood smoke task force would never propose it in the first place.

The rumor mill has been going wild on this issue, and anonymous persons have been printing and distributing misleading flyers to residents in south Maplewood. Apparently some talk radio programs have also been helping spread misinformation, and a recent newspaper letter to the editor tries to further fan the flames of panic.

Perhaps the disinformation campaign for next year's city elections is starting already.
