One of the main topics of discussion was regarding an outdoor fire policy. A motion was carried to put the following policy into effect :

The Town of Eston will continue to allow outdoor fires, but a fire ban will be put in place if conditions become too try.
Wood burning fire pits should be covered with a heavy metal screen, and the pit's width cannot be more than 36 inches. The fire needs to be contained in a non-flammable appliance made of at least 1/16 inch thick material . Fires must always be supervised and should never be left unattended. Burning of any substance besides charcoal, propane and clean wood is against the law.
