Because of recent rains and changed weather conditions, the open burning ban for unincorporated Johnson County was rescinded Tuesday, Sept. 25, by the Johnson County Board of Commissioners after consultation with the county fire inspector and rural fire district chiefs.
The lifting of the burning ban, which was imposed on July 2, becomes effective immediately. The action follows a temporary suspension of the open burning ban that was issued September 4 and ended September 25, paving the way for a permanent lifting of the ban.
