Ste.Anne Announces Fire Ban
Written by Shannon Dueck
The Reeve of Ste.Anne says they are being proactive as things start to dry.
Art Bergmann notes the municipality has issued a fire ban, effective immediately. That means no burning trash or grass.
“There was opportunity in the last few weeks to do it with care,” notes Bergmann. “But now we are asking people that they refrain from burning trash and grass and so forth around their yards.”
However, he says they will allow backyard fires in an enclosed pit as long as it is completely doused once you are done with it.
Bergmann says even though their fire trucks are not being called out to grass fires, the municipality is trying to be proactive. He notes they will remove the ban once things turn green.
