township residents losing liberty to have campfires through the night

An ordinance to limit the times and days that outdoor burning is permitted in Ligonier Township was approved this week by the planning commission, which recommended sending the measure to supervisors for a final OK.
In residential areas, the proposed ordinance limits materials that may be burned to paper products, newspaper and yard waste — excluding grass and building materials — from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays.
Saturday burning would be limited to 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. During daylight saving time and summer months, burning is permitted from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays.
The burning of garbage, rubber, tires, paint, animal waste, plastics, diapers, toxic materials and any other materials consisting of rubbish, trade waste, refuse or garbage is prohibited.
