Potter County Issues Burn Ban

Due to continuing high temperatures, The Potter County Commissioners approved a 90 day burn ban in the county on Monday.

The last burn ban expired May 12th. Oldham County also enacted a temporary burn ban.

 Burn bans prohibit the creation of any open flames outside.


 That means fire pits, campfires, uncovered grills and open burning of trash.


If you violate a burn ban, that’s a Class C Misdemeanor and you could be facing a fine of up to $500.
