|Fire Restrictions Lifted in JCPRD Parks|
Fire restrictions implemented in Johnson County Park and Recreation District parks in late July have now been lifted.
The restrictions were implemented by the JCPRD is response and in accordance with a burning ban for unincorporated areas of the county issued recently by Johnson County Officials. The county's fire ban was formally rescinded by the Johnson County Fire Marshal on Sept. 3 due to a change in local weather conditions and in response to recommendations by local fire chiefs.
With the lifting of restrictions, the District's regular rules and regulations are back in effect. For more information, call Bill Cobb, Superintendent of Parks & Golf Courses, at (913) 438-7275 Voice, or (913) 831-3342 TDD.
