Burn Ban For Polk County

Polk County Judge Brandon Ellison has ordered a burn ban for Polk County. In a release Judge Ellison notes that “a long duration of dry weather, with lack of adequate rainfall or precipitation has created dry and hazardous conditions throughout Polk County. The order goes on to state, “The court finds that an emergency situation exists in the unincorporated areas of Polk County and the hazard to life and property is such that a ban and prohibition against outdoor burning is hereby declared.”

This ban will remain in place until it is lifted by Judge Ellison.
