Galen Neiderwerder, Meade County Commission
Special commission meeting to discuss lifting burn ban
News Staff - January 3, 2018

STURGIS, SD – A special meeting of the Meade County Commission is planned for today, Wednesday, January 3, 2018. 

According to Commissioner Galen Niederwerder, the issue at hand is his proposal to lift the burn ban in Meade County.

Rural landowners who utilize garbage dumps for burning on private land have been limited due to extended drought conditions and subsequent burn bans.

Niederwerder says that ranchers and farmers need to be able to burn their dumps before the recent snow cover melts and before any future snow storms fill the dumps with so much snow, it’s not possible to burn them.

More details regarding the proposed lifting of the burn ban in Meade County will be discussed at today’s special meeting, beginning at 1:00pm in the Meade County Commission room in Sturgis, SD.
