For the first time in 5 years, the Lane Regional Air Protection Agency will issue citations to some Eugene residents for violating a burn ban.
LRAPA said the citations, which are just as legally binding as a traffic ticket, will go to residents whose homes were shown to have a chimney emitting visible smoke during late-November's burn ban.
Wood stoves and fireplaces emitting visible smoke were prohibited while the weather trapped smoke in the valley last month.
"We have full legal authority to enforce the city ordinances of Eugene and Springfield," said Sally Markos, Lane Regional Air Protection Agency spokeswoman.

“You can find trees in town, too,” Glazier said. “That's just more convenient, but we like to spend a little more time and get out of town a little bit.”
