 prescribed burn notice News item size

The Ingham County Drain Commissioner's Office will conduct the annual controlled/prescribed burn in the Towar Gardens neighborhood in Meridian Township between 11:00 am and 7:00 pm on Wednesday, May 6th, weather permitting. The burn areas are shown in the map attached to the press release below.

Historically, fire was a common feature of the midwest landscape. Reintroducing fire helps to curb the non-native invasive species and give the native fire-adaptive plants a chance to renew. The burn will be conducted by David Borneman, LLC. David Borneman, its President, has over 30 years of professional experience conducting prescribed, ecological burns on thousands of acres.

The whole procedure will take only a few hours. The Meridian Township Fire Department will be in attendance. The neighborhood has received notice of this event by mail. 

During this time of the COVID-19 pandemic, all workers will follow the State and County public health guidance for safe practices. The health of all residents and workers will be of paramount concern during this procedure. 

Additional information or questions can be directed to Ingham County Drain Engineer Angie Cosman at 517.719,5431.
