Burn Ban Lifted

BY MELANIE BUCK –

A countywide burn ban that was put in place on August 6th by Polk County Judge Brandon Ellison was lifted at 8 a.m. Thursday morning, August 20th, following Wednesday’s much needed rainfall.

In a statement released by Judge Ellison early Thursday morning, he said, “Polk County has recently received enough moisture and the future weather forecast indicates low winds and higher humidity with the possibility of more precipitation. These conditions should make it safer for outdoor burning.”
