PRESS RELEASE FOR BURNING AND PICKUP OF JUNE 28, 2018 STORM DEBRIS

7/04/2018

Due to the significant amount of tree damage debris that was generated by the storm on June 28, (in addition to the debris pick up program for all residents) Mayor McCormick has also signed a “state of emergency” declaration which will temporarily lift the burn regulation and allow residents to burn tree limbs on Wednesdays and Saturdays for 30 days starting July 3rd and running through August 1st.

According to village ordinance, all burning must be constantly supervised and conducted at least 20 feet away from any building or structure. Burning may only take place during daylight hours of 9:00AM-3:00PM on July 7, 11, 14, 18, 21, 25, 28, and August 1st at which point the declaration expires.

By invoking the emergency clause and allowing people to burn, this will provide more options to those dealing with tree debris.

Godfrey’s burn ordinance details for declared emergencies:

  • ARTICLE IV. - BURNING OF LANDSCAPE WASTE                                                                                                    30-101. - Permitted months, hours and locations.

Except in areas of the village consisting of agricultural farms in agricultural use, as those terms are defined in section 60.112 of Ordinance No. 13-95 of the village, outdoor landscape waste and leaf burning shall be prohibited except on Wednesdays and Saturdays during the months of March, April, May, October, November and December of each year. Outdoor landscape waste and leaf burning shall be limited in all locations within the village where permitted to the daylight hours between 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. of each day on which such burning is permitted. All fire or emission of smoke from the burning of landscape waste and leaves shall be completely extinguished by 3:00 p.m. All fires must be continuously tended until extinguished by the landowner, homeowner or resident of the property.

Notwithstanding the limitations set forth in the preceding paragraph, in the event a declaration of state of emergency is made by the president of the village under section 26-39 of the Code, the president is authorized to modify the burning restrictions set forth in this section by written executive order for such a period not exceeding 30 days. The village president's executive order shall be effective immediately upon issuance and shall be reported to the board of trustees at the next regularly scheduled village board meeting after the issuance of the executive order.

(Ord. No. 21-94, § 2(40.1), 10-18-1994; Ord. No. 15-95, § 1(40.1), 10-18-1995; Ord. No. 19-2009, § 1, 7-7-2009; Ord. No. 20-2009, § 1, 9-1-2009; Ord. No. 15-2017, § 1, 8-1-2017)
