City OK’s ban on coal tar

City Council voted unanimously, March 26, to approve new regulations on driveway sealants in the city.
The new ordinance bans the use and sale of coal-tar-based sealants. It also requires residents to get a one-time permit from the city to apply sealants on their driveways.
City council will set a fee for the permit at a later meeting. The ordinance takes effect 20 days after publication.
