"Burn barrels are restricted to the Esplanade, the pedestrian boulevard at the front of our city, Villages, Center Camp, and the two Plazas at 3 o'clock and 9 o'clock. All structures must be 50 feet from any burn barrel." From

'55 gallon steel drum "burn barrels" with legs, staked
down against high winds, will be provided for some theme camps on the Esplanade. Groups receiving these will be asked to monitor their use and help with their clean up.' From

So, it looks like the idea is so old that it's been outlawed. On the other hand Fire (Fighters) Camp didn't get our ('official') burn barrels until Monday, Tuesday or so, and it took multiple trips out to the DPW depot to remind them we were waiting and to find out what was going on. (Unattached feet.) Which leads me to a question. Does this mean that there is room in DPW for an enterprising type, providing his own barrels, to help get them out faster? Or are they really stringent and only allow the DPW elect to create such animals?
