Burning banned by Ward

Letcher County Judge/ Executive Jim Ward has declared a burning ban.

Ward said because of current and predicted weather conditions and the extreme danger of forest fires in Letcher County, he issued an executive order effective on Oct. 22 prohibiting all outdoor burning in Letcher County. This prohibition is in effect until this proclamation has been rescinded by public notice.

“I urge all Letcher County citizens to comply with this proclamation so that we can preserve Letcher County’s timber resources,” said Ward.
