As part of the County’s ongoing work to lower the risk of wildfire, County crews will be conducting a 10-day controlled burn to dispose of wood debris in four areas along the fireguard, starting Wednesday, February 28.

Residents should refer to the map for the four pinned locations. Crews will be burning at the four sites for 24 hours per day, seven days per week for the 10-day burn permit. County crews will then re-evaluate the level of completion to determine whether weather conditions are suitable for any additional required burning.

The County completed the same permitting process required by residents, and no special permission was granted to complete the burn. Residents with questions should contact the County’s Transportation and Utilities department at 780-532-9722.
