Weather permitting, the Ida Grove Fire Department will be conducting a controlled burn at the city brush pile this week. The brush pile will be closed to the public at the time of the burn.
The city compost and brush pile are special amenities to those within city limits of Ida Grove. Unfortunately, we have been seeing a lot of illegal dumping at these piles. There are rules and regulations to keep this open for the citizens of our community. If the piles continue to be filled with prohibited debris, the city will no longer be able to offer this to the community. We would like to continue to have this open for our residents, but we are asking you to help do your part and keep the compost and brush pile free and clear of any illegal deposits. Our compost and brush pile are under surveillance, and anyone violating the rules will be subject to a fine.
Our brush pile is closed through July 4th. Our tree pile reached new heights with our latest round of removing dead or decaying trees on city property. Starting this morning, city crews – with the assistance of our volunteer fire department – began burning this pile. Over the course of the next few days, the city will monitor the progress and turn the pile to make sure all becomes ash which requires no special disposal.
