North Bay council will vote on whether to allow open burning in the urban part of the city tonight.
The by-law supporting the change passed at the committee level last week. The burning would have to be in a controlled device, and at least 18 feet from a structure. If passed, it would come into effect on January 1st.
Meanwhile… You might see less North Bay City Councillors at the discussion table in 2018.
A motion is being forwarded by Councillor Mac Bain tonight to cut the number of city politicians from 10 to eight in the next election. Savings would come in around $38,000.
