Even outside the time and date restrictions, any person conducting a burn must obtain landowner permission, remain with the fire while it is burning, and take all reasonable precautions to prevent the fire from escaping.
Where can I be notified of Sexual Offenders in my area?
Summer is here and our kids are on summer break. Now is a perfect time to register for email alerts of registered sex offenders in our community. The benefit of registering for this confidential e-mail alert service allows us to monitor your important addresses for you, thereby keeping you up to date of newly registered offenders and making it unnecessary for you to have to check your important addresses daily or even weekly. You can register any and all of the addresses where your children spend a lot of time, for example friends, grandparents, or babysitters addresses. The alerts are in real-time and sent out via e-mail as soon as a new offender has registered with our Office. Click the “Register for Offender Alerts” link above to get signed up.
