The following subsections of the International Fire Code as adopted pursuant to Section 1610.01 of the Howell City Code are hereby amended as follows:
Section 307.1.2 Local Burning Ordinances Preserved. Nothing in this Code shall be construed as prohibiting the City from regulating matters of open burning pursuant to Chapter 1613 of the Howell City Code.

Section 307.6 Fire department training. Open burning is allowed for the purpose of training fire fighters in fire fighting practice, or for the purpose of training the public, including workers or employees, or for the purpose of demonstration by the fire official or other trained fire personnel, when such burning is done in accordance with accepted practice.
Section 307.7 Banning open burning. The Fire Chief, Fire Marshal, or fire code official shall be authorized to issue a ban on all open burning if conditions are too hazardous in the opinion of the fire code official to allow the open burning, open flame, etc.
