MICS building update and request for work party.

Fire Hazard Status Update/Burning Restrictions Media Release

As of noon tomorrow, you will be permitted to burn your yard debris. Category 2 and 3 burning restrictions will be lifted in our area (Category 3 fires require a burning number). However, should any of us decide to do so, please do so with caution. We have had alot of rain in the last week, but from what I’ve seen it has not penetrated much. I have attached the media release from BCWS. This should answer most of your questions. This is for woody debris, stumps, branches etc. This does not permit the burning of garbage like plastic, styrofoam, tires etc. Should you witness a garbage fire, please call “Report All Poachers And Polluters” at 1-877-952-7277.
Thank you everyone for being so careful and so helpful, and so supportive to MICS this summer. Chad
