TREASURES & TIDBITS…

Remember to observe Fire & Fireworks Restrictions…

As Independence Day draws near, the County urges residents to take a minute to read this proclamation (see link below) that was passed by the County Council earlier in June – certain types of fireworks are banned from use within County borders. The USFS also has its own set of restrictions in place for camping in nearby mountains. Stay safe, and keep the natural wildland surroundings safe, too, as it’s very dry out there.
