City Fire Restrictions
On June 22, the City issued a revised fire restriction order. Effective immediately, all fires of any kind or the burning of any material of any kind on public or private property within the City is prohibited. The restriction does not prohibit the use of charcoal, wood fire or propane grills, ovens or smokers on private property.

Violations are subject to fines of up to $2,650 and/or 1 year in jail.

Fire restrictions

Fire and smoking restrictions on city owned properties remain in effect. The closure and restriction orders issued on June 13, 2018 were difficult, but necessary decisions to make. With progress being made on the 416 fire, local emergency resources are more readily available to respond to local calls. Please remember that the entire southwest Colorado region is in an exceptional drought, with high fire danger. Exercise caution when enjoying outdoor activities.
