County, in extreme drought, to enforce burn ban

Just days after fireworks lit the sky on the Fourth of July, Kendall County reinstituted its countywide burn ban.

No outdoor burning will be permitted in the unincorporated areas of the county until further notice. Violations of the burn ban could cost offenders $200 for a first offense and more for repeated violations.

Kendall County Commissioners Court’s unanimous vote Monday to begin enforcement of the burn ban came after Fire Marshal Brady Constantine reviewed the latest drought index figures showing the county above the 500-level threshold, signifying excessive countywide drought.
