Franklin County Judge Paul Lovier lifted the ban on outdoor burning Monday, September 23. The action to rescind the ban went into effect upon the judge signing the order at 8:30 a.m.
The removal of the ban was made upon recommendation of Fire Marshal Gerry Allen. His recommendation was spurred by a dramatic change in the drought index and forecast. For more information, see the September 26 edition of the Mount Vernon Optic-Herald.
