The Ridgway Township Supervisors voted unanimously in favor of repealing an outdoor wood burner ordinance and replacing it with ordinance No. 98.
The new ordinance will abide by regulations set by the Department of Environmental Protection [DEP].
"DEP came out with regulations last October so our ordinance is in conflict with it and since they now have regulations we want to turn it over to them," said supervisor Millie Bowers.
DEP had adopted rules and regulations which address the use, construction, placement and fuels to be used in outdoor wood burners.
