In addition to forest fire hazard seasons and outdoor burning regulations enforced by the Kentucky Division of Forestry (KDF), the Kentucky Division for Air Quality and the Kentucky Division of Waste Management, further restrictions may be initiated at the local level through county burn bans and local ordinances. County burn bans are issued by the county judge/executive and are enforced http://forestry.ky.gov/wildlandfiremanagement...

We DO need a burn ban. But a burn ban isn't going to stop an idiot from throwing a cigarette out of a car window. That's littering and illegal but it still doesn't stop people.

Call the mayor and ask. We don't call the shots- he does.

Need to ban fireworks this year also its dry out there.

Well I will be shooting fireworks this weekend but I will be taking proper precautions....lots and lots of watering down my lawn as well as my neighbors lawns as well as all property nearby, talked to my neighbors and they are fine with it, so just because you see fireworks this weekend doesn't mean people aren't taking the steps they need to take in order to prevent a disaster...I just hope everyone takes the proper steps as well as have a good plan in place in case something does go wrong! It really sucks to have gone out and spent lots of $ on fireworks and then not be able to shoot them off so we have made a plan, a backup plan and a backup backup plan and are going to do things as safe as possible and I know several other families who are doing the same thing.

Sounds like you have a good plan. Hope everyone does, the house down the road from me won't even mow their grass ( it is waist high) the kids get lost in it.
I really hope all of Allen County will be extra safe this 4th.

Oh, quit being such a wuss. Copy and paste sucks too. All some people do is complain about something. I bet we get some rain when God decides to send it. That's the problem now and a hole is in the ozone layer, folks skimping by on their tithes. Folks trying to skimp by on 1-2% and some folks -0-. You can't cheat the Lord ah. You open your pocket books at Christmas and June Bugs fly out. That's not a good sign. Amen.

There's a hole in the Ozone Layer and we're experiencing dry weather because we don't pay money to a church? That's the stupidest thing I've ever heard.
