As leaves are falling from the trees, Grant Township has taken action to ban burning of leaves and other household refuse in the residential resort zones in the township.
The township board approved the ban of outdoor burning of leaves, yard waste and household waste and garbage at its Oct. 2 meeting.
The ban was recommended by the township’s planning commission, which held a public hearing on the burning ban at its Sept. 24 meeting.
Joan Brooks, township trustee and member of the planning commission, brought the recommendation to the township board.
Joan Brooks said the ban would impact four communities in township, including Oceana Shores, Lake Tahoe, Robinhood Drive and Deluxe Oaks.
