In an effort to reduce fire occurrences and exposure of our responders to Covid-19, the DNR is cancelling burning permits in DNR protection areas across the state effective March 27, 2020. This includes burning barrels, debris piles on the ground and grass or wooded acres with annual burning permits. FIRE RINGS, AND GRILLING IS STILL PERMITTED. Thanks for your cooperation. Scott Bernette, Fire Chief
Make sure you participate in the Census. It is very important for everyone to be counted. A few examples of what the results assist with are: allocating money for highways, school lunches, firefighters and families in need to name a few. Census results affect your community every day.
