BANDON - The City of Bandon's open burning proclamation, which temporarily removed all open burning exemptions outlined in the Bandon Municipal Code, Chapter 8.20 and established additional limitations to open burning and the use of spark producing equipment within the city limits of the City of Bandon only, has been rescinded, effective Sept. 21.
Open-burning restrictions will re-set to those outlined in BMC Chapter 8.20, which includes no burn piles, no burn barrels and no open burning within city limits.
The City of Bandon issued temporary fire restrictions for residents regarding open burning on Sept 7, due to the dry conditions and the state of extreme fire danger at the time. The proclamation was in effect for the areas inside Bandon city limits only. To find out about current Coos Forest Protective Association restrictions, visit www.coosfpa.net.
