City outlaws barbecue grills on decks of multifamily homes

Eagan now outlaws the use and storage of grills on balconies of multifamily homes.

City Council members on March 5 amended city code to set a policy outlawing grill use within 15 feet of the structure of a multifamily dwelling.

The policy also prohibits storage of fuel, torches or lighting devices on balconies as well fires of any kind.

There is no ordinance regulating grills at individual homes because homeowners choose where to do the grilling, and if it catches fire, it endangers just their families and not others, Fire Chief Michael Scott said. However, he does not recommend grilling on any deck and advises that they be used 15 feet from the house, Scott said.

The city has outlawed the storage of grills on multifamily balconies because it’s difficult to enforce the ordinance “if it can be stored and not used,’’ he said.
