White Pigeon village officials have deferred a matter regarding outdoor, wood-burning boilers until more information can be gathered by a council member and zoning official.
A month after village council member Shireen Cline raised health-related concerns about the devices, the panel on Wednesday agreed to have Cline meet with Doug Kuhlman, zoning administrator for the village. The two will review the village’s current ordinance and try to come up with a revised regulation.
Cline said between the council’s April meeting and Wednesday, she has secured additional information about health-related risks the burners pose.
She said the work session with Kuhlman would allow the opportunity to mesh portions of a proposed, revised ordinance with sections of the Michigan DEQ’s outdoor-burning ordinance.
Cline has cited concerns about health risks associated with the wood-fueled burners.
