Sheriff Urges Caution During Agricultural Burning

The season has begun when local residents begin burning off weeds and stubble in their fields and irrigation ditches.  Sheriff Scott Steward once again reminds all Park County residents to use extreme caution when deciding where and when to conduct an agricultural (controlled) burn on their property. 
 
“Every year at this time, our 911 Communications Center must dispatch county fire departments to fires that have been set to burn off agricultural material but have quickly gotten out of control,” Steward said.  “Agricultural burns can be an efficient and effective way of clearing land and irrigation canals of unwanted weeds and debris, but they can also present an extreme hazard to persons and property if they are not conducted properly.”

INMATE WORK CREW CLEANS POWELL CANAL

The Park County Sheriff’s Inmate Work Crew was recently deployed to clean the irrigation canal running along Coulter Avenue in Powell. The Inmate Work Crew Program allows inmates incarcerated for lesser charges to serve on outside work details while fulfilling their sentences. Deputies from the Park County Detention facility form these work crews on an “as needed” basis depending upon staffing levels and the number of inmates who qualify for the crews. Inmates must earn the privilege to serve on a work crew based on a number of factors including their overall background, behavior while incarcerated and the crime to which they have been convicted. Only inmates who have been convicted of lesser misdemeanor crimes are permitted to perform this community service. Thanks to their efforts, over four dumpsters of trash was removed from the canal.
