November 15, 2016

Due to the extreme drought, dry conditions and high winds, Sole Commissioner Bebe Heiskell has issued a resolution declaring an immediate countywide temporary ban on all types of outdoor open burning, including campfires, open cooking fires, warming fires and bonfires throughout Walker County.

This ban went into effect at noon on Monday, Nov. 14, and shall remain in effect until such time as drought conditions and the risk to life and property have diminished to a point where this order can be officially lifted.
