St. Joseph Co. burn ban amnesty week announced


St. Joseph County residents will be able to burn their leaves, but not for another few weeks.  County Commissioner Andrew Kostielney confirmed Wednesday that the Burn Ban amnesty week will run from December 2 through December 9.

During that week residents will not be fined for burning leaves.

The county approved a ban on burning leaves in unincorporated areas back in September.  The county will be offering two amnesty weeks each year.  One is in the spring, the other is in the fall.
