Burning Regulation Changes Committee

A committee was formed in 2017 with the mission of revewing and recommending changes to the current Saline County open burning regulations.  The objectives were to make controlled burning safer in our county and to ensure that the agriculture community can accomplish their burning inside the various deadlines dictated by nature and governmental agencies.  Our hope is to have any changes in place by the end of 2017 in time for the 2018 burning season.  The intent is to have the minimum amount of regulation with maximum results.  Below are meeting minutes and the results of the on-line survey that was launched in May 2017.
