The Town will be conducting a controlled burn at Reservoir Park on Wednesday, January 12th. The park will be closed all day and signs will be posted.
What is a controlled or prescribed burn? It’s one of the safest ways to manage overgrowth and promote new, healthy growth in wooded areas, wetlands, crop fields and prairies. They get rid of dead timber and brush, which can easily catch fire and spread an uncontrolled wildfire more easily. The Fire Department carefully plans and executes the burn in the safest manner possible.
