Recent Prescribed burns were done by the USFS in the areas South of Lake George. Please be aware that even with the most recent snowfall, it is possible to still see smoke in the area as well as active flames in the burn area. This is normal. Forest Service continues to Patrol and Monitor these areas.
If you are a Park County Resident and have signed up for Code Red, you would have been alerted to a new ordinance regarding the Burn Permits on the evening of June 19. In short, residents are required to have a BURN PERMIT for ALL OUTDOOR BURNING and any permits obtained prior to June 3, 2019 are no longer valid. You must go to your local Fire District and obtain a new one outlining the new stipulations. There will be a $10.00 fee. I am posting the ordinance (8 pages) below and will be posting it on our Facebook Page today as well. Thank you very much for your understanding and cooperation.
