Crawford County Supervisors adopt October burn ban
The Crawford County Board of Supervisors approved a county-wide burn ban on Tuesday.
Chairman Kyle Schultz says it covers county property and will be in place for the entire month of October.
“Get the majority of our crops harvested with the ongoing and lingering drought. It’s a lot easier to put out a harvested field than one that’s still standing. People always have something to burn but we have to think about public safety and the safety of our first responders,” said Schultz.
Schultz says the board can look at lifting the burn ban if the county gets more rain this fall. You can also contact your local fire chief to make a plan if you have something you need to burn. He says the supervisors also approved plans for next summer’s bridge replacement project on County Road L51 crossing the Soldier River which will cost about $1.2 million in federal dollars.
