Inyo Supes Consider Banning Campfires in County-Managed Campgrounds

Inyo Supes Hold Special Meeting To Consider Banning Campfires in County-managed Campgrounds

The Inyo County Board of Supervisors will hold a special meeting Friday, August 20, to consider prohibit campfires at County-managed campgrounds.
The open session of the meeting begins at 8:30 a.m. The discussion on campfire prohibition is the only item for discussion.
Emergency Services Manager Kelley Williams requested the discussion based on local fire conditions and action taken by the Bureau of Land Management August 13 to ban campfires on all BLM lands, including developed recreational sites. The Inyo National Forest Service still allows campfires in designated sites, at least as of August 19 morning.

Are you sure MC? That may be where it is held but where can he view the meeting? If you send someone to Independence and they can’t get in the meeting it would be a real bummer.

Mitch – do you really think you need to put “at what location” in parentheses after the word “where”?

Cause most people already know that’s what the word “where” means.

Oh wait, this is Inyo County – we do need brush-ups on things like the definition of “where.”

My bad.
