Burn Ban
April 25, 2017

The Levy County Board of County Commissioners has enacted Emergency
Declaration 2017-018 and Emergency Order 2017-019 establishing a burn ban
throughout the unincorporated areas of Levy County. This is an executive
emergency order due to the extreme dry conditions that affect our county. Levy
County has suffered massive losses in the past from unintentional fires caused
by unattended or irresponsibly set fires. DO NOT burn yard debris, trash or
other unwanted items around your homes during this time. Due to these current
conditions, fires will rapidly spread out of control and could endanger lives.  

This Emergency Order establishes this violation is a second degree
misdemeanor pursuant to Section 252.50, Florida Statutes.

Anyone having questions are asked to contact the Division of Forestry at
352-493-6060.
