trash burn

Saturday began fall burn week in the Town of Jackson.  Fire Marshal Kathy Clay says persons wishing to, can use controlled burns from now through November 10th to rid their properties of branches, leaves and clean wood.  She says burns are limited to natural vegetation and prohibits items like processed lumber, plastics or asphalt shingles.  She says those conducting burns should also be mindful not to smoke out neighbors – especially if they have breathing issues. Clay emphasizes that those wishing to conduct burns need to contact Jackson Hole Law Enforcement in advance of the burn.  Then, she says the familiar precautions apply to any burn.  Clay says, “Make sure that your [burn] pile is away from anything else that can burn: we want to have 50 feet separation between you and your house, cars, that type of thing.”  She also adds that you should have a garden hose or some sort of way to extinguish the fire should it begin to get out of control. She says the best time to do the burns is in the morning before the winds pick up in the afternoon.  The number to call to arrange to conduct a burn is 733-2331.

  • Pelts are nearing prime conditions - November 26, 2014
    The days are getting shorter and the nights are getting longer. It’s the amount of daylight, and not the temperature, that causes wild animals to grow longer, thicker coats. If you’re a predator hunter or a trapper, that’s your cue. The pelts are coming into their prime right now, but that doesn’t mean they’re at […]
