Farmer City Implements Burn Ban, To Offer City-Wide Brush Pick Up This Week Only

A burn ban is in place in Farmer City for the remainder of the week.


City Administrator Sue McLaughlin tells Regional Radio the dry weather is obviously the reason for this ban but points out it is a short extension of the burn ban for July and August.



Coincidentally, the burn ban comes on the heels of the city surveying the community in regards to burning in the city. McLaughlin says the community overwhelmingly told city officials they want to leave the burning rules in place.



McLaughin also indicates because of the windy day it was on Sunday, the City is implementing a city-wide pickup of brush this week. She explains residents can just leave that brush out on the curb and crews will come get it.



For the latest on all things Farmer City, McLaughlin points residents and others to follow the City's Facebook page.
