Burn Ban Ordinance (Draft) for Review

With Spring officially here, Stutsman County officials have been busy putting together a burn ban ordinance which will define the prohibitions on open burning during a red flag warning or while the county is in a ‘Very High’ or ‘Extreme’ fire danger rating. The ordinance will have a first reading and presentation to the County Commission at the next regularly scheduled meeting set for April 4th, 2017 at 4:00 PM.
