The Jefferson County Commissioners adopted a resolution last month to set an annual Fire Safety Burn Ban to run July 1 through September 30. This resolution takes effect this year, meaning the county is now under those burn restrictions. (June 17, 2024 meeting of Jefferson County Commissioners.)

The commissioners unanimously approved the rules change making the seasonal burn ban an annual occurrence. This burn ban does not affect recreational fires (fires under 3-feet diameter burning only clean firewood or charcoal).
