PARK DEPT. BURNING PUNCTURE VINE ON CITY PROPERTY
(WEDNESDAY MARCH 21 TO FRIDAY MARCH 30, 2018)
NOTICE: On Wednesday, March 21st, 2018, weather and schedules permitting, the City of Sidney Parks Department will begin a controlled burn to remove puncture vine stickers from the open space between the tee-ball fields and the Aquatic Center lawns. In addition, a strip will be burned along the un-irrigated portion of the walking trail where puncture vine is known to... exist.
The Parks Department will acquire a burn permit from the Fire Department and follow permitting guidelines.
Conditions permitting, the project will be completed before Friday March 30th, 2018.
PREPARATION: Parks personnel will have a water tank with pressurized spray wand for controlling the burn.
CAUTION: The Parks Department will typically burn between the hours of 7:30 am – 3:30 pm, as weather and schedules permit. Smoke will be limited as the material is already mowed to a shortened height. Those persons with respiratory restrictions residing close to the City Aquatic Center, Tee-ball Fields, and Walking Trails should stay indoors with windows closed during the localized burning.
