Commissioners Lift Burn Ban

July 19, 2012

  07/20/12 The Marshall County Board of Commissioners have determined that with the recent rainfall we have received the last two days, conditions have improved enough to lift the Disaster Declaration that has been in place.  The Disaster Declaration prohibiting open burning will no longer be in effect beginning at 4 p.m. Thursday.

However, the Commissioners will be monitoring weather and drought conditions and if it becomes apparent that the dry conditions are increasing the risk of fire danger, the Disaster Declaration will be reinstated.

The Commissioners would like to remind everyone to follow good safety practices when using fire and combustible materials.

For additional information you can contact the Marshall County Emergency Management Agency at 936-3740.

    Total bummer. Thanks for checking, Kathy.

    The Plymouth Ordinance only allows for 4th of July fireworks to be used from June 29th until July 9th. In checking with the police department they will not make any exceptions. You can legally fire them off for New Year’s Eve from 10 a.m. on December 31st until 1 a.m. on January 1st.

    Can we light our fireworks now that we have shown our patience?
