CORUNNA – The Shiawassee County Board of Commissioners approved an amendment to its zoning ordinance for the regulation of outdoor solid fuel furnaces Thursday.

Outdoor furnaces will be permitted for use by single-family residential structures located in A-1, A-1/2 and A-2 zoning districts and will require a permit prior to installation.

Only material recommended by the manufacturer will be allowed to be burned.

“The use of trash, plastics, gasoline, oil, rubber, garbage, petroleum treated products, pressure treated wood, leaves, paper products, cardboard and other materials that could void the outdoor furnace warranty are prohibited and subject to enforcement,” the ordinance reads.

The ordinance also regulated the distance from which a furnace may be located from the residence; another residential or commercial property; and assembly areas such as schools, churches and public parks.

The ordinance was recommended to the Board by the Shiawassee County Planning Commission.
