Update 1:55 p.m.: After an Evanston Now reader pointed out that the state doesn't consider a "face cord" a legal term for describing a quantity of firewood, the city updated its news release to provide the following description of available quantities and prices:

Two stacks of firewood measuring 4 feet by 4 feet by 1.5 feet, $150. One stack that size, $80. A stack 2-feet by 4 feet by 1.5 feet, $50. And a stack 1-foot by 4-feet by 1.5 feet, $30.
