Council Leaves Open Burning Alone

Posted on 04 April 2012 by KWBG

BOONE, Iowa—This year, the unseasonably mild weather has led to an increase in burning complaints called into the Boone Fire Department.  Since the Boone County Landfill altered their dates for dumping yard waste free of charge, Fire Chief Justin Adams asked the City Council this week if they wished to alter the time frame for open burning of yard waste.  After discussion, Council members left the matter alone noting that open burning of yard waste is permitted from April 15th to May 15th and that should allow residents time to take care of yard clean up.  Yard waste is taken free of charge at the Landfill during business hours until Saturday May 5th.
