Bellevue council overrides mayor's veto on grilling restrictions
Share with others:
Bellevue council members voted Tuesday night to override the mayor's veto and push through an ordinance banning grilling within 5 feet of combustible material.
The ordinance, which also requires residents to obtain one-time open-burning permits, has been a hot topic in Bellevue since council members voted in its favor last month.
Mayor George Doscher vetoed it last week and said he "was not surprised" council voted 6-3 to override his veto.
Proponents have said the ordinance promotes "common sense" safety measures while opponents called it an example of "over-legislation."
