Joe Pelle: Why Boulder County doesn’t impose seasonal fire bans

Posted on: August 11th, 2016

We had quite a discussion, prompted by Pam Sherman’s report (next digest item) at the Town Meeting on Monday, about the danger of irresponsible people and their campfires starting fires like the Cold Springs Fire

From Steffi Wilson:  This article by Sheriff Joe Pelle explains why the Sheriff can’t just put up a seasonal fire ban because people want it. Several people felt that laws can be changed, however, and that we should all put our heads together to see how we as a town can voice an opinion in this.
