Due to the wet and windy weather during the last scheduled burn weekend, the City of Centralia has announced the next 2 weekends will be approved for open burning.
In addition, the times for burning will be extended as follows: this Saturday and Sunday next Saturday and Sunday from 7 A.M. to 6 P.M.
It is important to remember that all fires must be attended by a responsible adult. Open burning may not take place on any city street, roadway, alley, or manhole cover.
Burning in ditches is allowed but it is recommended that the leaves are not stockpiled in the ditch too many days prior to the burn in order to not impede drainage of storm water.
