Piper City bans burning; village asks residents to use less water
PIPER CITY - The Piper City Village Board has issued a burn ban until further notice.
The ban, which includes trash burning, campfires and brush piles, is prompted by the drought. Violators will be given one warning by Fred Fanning, chief of police, before a fine is levied for a second offense.
In a related matter, Dick Chandler, village board president, asked residents to reduce their use of water.
