Douglas County burn ban lifted

March 12, 2011


Douglas County Commission Chairman Jim Flory lifted the burn ban Saturday night that had been put into effect the day before.

A majority of township fire chiefs in the county agreed the burn ban could be lifted, said County Administrator Craig Weinaug.

Before conducting a controlled burn, residents should contact their township fire chief, Weinaug said. Residents can find out how to reach the fire chiefs by calling dispatchers at 841-7210.

It was a stupid call by Flory/Fire chiefs in the first place. Standing water all around in the fields. Just corrected a wrong as far as I'm concerned.
