Outdoor burning bans:

Rural Green County: Following a written request from the Green County Fire Chief's Association, the Green County Sheriff's Department is implementing an outdoor burning ban, effective on Sunday, July 15, 2012 at 8:00 a.m. The ban covers all of Green County with the exception of cities and villages that have their own ordinances in place. Examples of prohibited outdoor burning includes campfires, burn barrels and brush piles.  Exempted in the ban would be gas or charcoal grills. Violators could be fined up to $200 and be responsible for the cost of damage done by a prohibited fire.  Due to the extremely dry conditions in Green County, the Green County Fire Chief's Association and the Green County Sheriff's Department would encourage Green County residents to refrain from outdoor burning even before the Sunday, July 15, 2012 at 8:00 a.m. implementation of the ban.

The outdoor burning ban will remain in effect until conditions improve and the community will be publicly notified by the sheriff's office.
