Just a friendly reminder! Chapter 8.38 of the Fort Dodge Code prohibits the open burning of solid waste and/or yard waste. Typically, the City will lift this burn ban twice a year - once in the Spring and once again in the Fall. It has not been lifted at this time. Individuals found to be in violation may subject to a fine up to $500 for their first offense.

The only exception to this ban is cut firewood when used for recreational cooking, heating, and recreational purposes and contained in an outdoor fireplace or pit with a fuel area of three feet or less in diameter and two feet or less in height; designed, built, and marketed specifically for outdoor burning in accordance with all applicable codes, laws and ordinances.Recommend NOT burning today. Going to be a windy one!
