At this morning’s Board of County Commissioner’s meeting, the Board approved a Resolution rescinding the Burn Ban. Therefore, the Burn Ban has officially been lifted.

We apologize for the delay in having it lifted. As we previously stated, several of the County Commissioners were away at a conference last week and could not hold a meeting to rescind the ban. At this morning’s meeting, the Board granted the County Manager authority to implement and lift burn bans upon recommendation of the Fire Chief. This should help prevent delays in the future.

As a reminder, you are only allowed to burn yard waste. You are NEVER allowed to burn household garbage (including paper products and newspapers), construction materials, plastics, rubber materials, tires, pesticides, paint, or aerosol containers. Please click here to view the State’s “Know the Law” brochure as it relates to burning, required setbacks, etc.

You are also welcome to reach out to Fire Rescue Headquarters at any time with questions. Their number is (904) 530-6600.
