Tama residents can burn their leaves and certain yard waste beginning this Sunday, Oct. 13, and continuing through Sunday, Nov. 17.
The exception is Halloween night, Oct. 31 due to trick or treaters.
Council members approved lifting the city-wide ban for the period on a 4-1 vote Monday night. Member Steve Baier voted no.
Also continuing to be legal are recreational fire rings and fire pits which are exempt from the burning ban.
Grass clippings and yard waste with woody stems cannot be burned. They can be deposited in a collection bin north of the Tama Civic Center complex near the recycling bin area.
Brush and limbs can be deposited only at the city brush pile south of Cherry Lake.
