A Haslett man is feeling burned because his condo association decided a few years ago that only gas grills would be allowed.  At the time, the decision was based on the belief that gas grills were safer than charcoal grills, according to the Lansing State Journal.

However, new research may show just the opposite is true, as the majority of grill-related fires in a National Fire Protection Association survey involved gas grills.

All this being said, it seems to me the solution ought to be pretty simple.  Take another vote based on the new research and allow charcoal grills again.

How often do condo associations meet?  Is it like a city council meeting?  Is there some process to get a subject on the agenda?  I need to know so when I'm old and retired (one can dream) I know what I'm getting myself into.
