The City shall establish and maintain an on-going program to educate the public on the provisions of this chapter and the health impact of wood smoke. The education program shall also identify the various types of wood-burning appliances and gas fireplaces, and instruct residents how to burn fires more cleanly. The City will educate the public that fireplace and woodstove maintenance are also effective in minimizing and reducing wood-burning emissions, and encourage cleaner-burning alternatives such as gas-fueled devices and proper wood-burning technique to build hotter, more efficient fires. The City will investigate ways to assist the public with replacement or removal, through programs or services.
