Speak out about leaf burning

Swansea residents, time is running out. Some of your trustees are proposing an ordinance to ban burning. Things like this are often passed because two or three vocal people whine until they get their way. If you do nothing, the trustees will pass the ordinance and you will have to pay to have your leaves, grass, etc., removed.

If you have branch-dropping trees like I do, I’m not even sure how we are supposed to package these branches for disposal. If dozens or hundreds of citizens voice their displeasure, we might be able to stop this nonsense and keep Swansea from devolving into Belleville.

Call or email your trustees today: swanseaofficials@swanseail.org
