Continued observance of burn ban necessary

were 20 written complaints this year, but that there had been way more in years past.

     Rainfall patterns across the area have been spotty in recent days, with some places getting short, heavy downfalls and still others seeing no rain at all. And what little moisture that has fallen has had little effect due to continued high temperatures.

     For that reason, residents should continue their diligence and observe their ongoing burn ban. Doing so will reduce any unnecessary threats to lives and property.
