Pulaski County Residents Reminded of Leaf Burning Regulations

 Pulaski County residents cannot burn leaves in roadways or within five feet of a road pavement edge. The county commissioners passed an ordinance prohibiting the practice earlier this year.

Highway Superintendent Mark Fox says burning leaves and brush on asphalt pavement causes damage to the road surface and creates a safety hazard to motorists. Violators will be fined $300 for a first offense and $750 for second and subsequent offenses. They will also be required to pay the county for all costs to repair the roads, including reasonable attorney fees.  Click here Pulaski County Ordinance 2014-05 to read the ordinance.
