The July 31 article “Council considers ban on wood burning fireplaces” misstated the motion passed by the city council. The motion that passed unanimously was a motion to instruct the Natural Resources Commission to write a wood burning ordinance based on the commission’s recommendations, but without a permit system and with more criteria than just wind speed. The motion also instructed the commission and city staff to add a strong public education component to the wood burning regulation program. The motion did not respond to city staff recommendations regarding voluntary reductions in wood burning. The Aggie regrets the error.
