City of Independence Rescinds Ban on Recreational Burning


The recent rains and cooler weather have helped the dry conditions in surrounding areas.


Independence Fire and EMS Chief Shawn Wallis told the Independence City Commission that they could discontinue the citywide burn ban that has been effect since mid-October.  Recreational burning, which is normally permitted by city ordinances, such as fires in firepits, outdoor fireplaces and chimineas, is now unrestricted.


More information on what types of burning are routinely permitted can be found here.
