The extended burn ban has resulted in an amount of brush and timber collecting at the burn pile which is approaching levels that could create significant risk should an unintended fire start. In the interest of safety, the burn pile will be closed starting Saturday, August 26th, at 3:30 p.m. It will remain closed until the burn ban for Leon County is lifted and the buildup of brush and timber can be reduced to a safe level.

An email will be sent and posting on the website will be made when the burn pile reopens.
