In addition, going forward, ONLY unit owners will be allowed to use any woodstoves in a unit; renters and guests in a unit will not be allowed to use the woodstoves (including pellet stoves). It will be the unit owner's responsibility to secure any stove in a unit and enforce this policy; or the unit owner will be automatically fined $500 per occurrence observed and reported."
