Polk County and the City of Bolivar issue burn bans


Due to extreme drought causing dry ground conditions and foliage dying out for the winter, the Bolivar City Fire Department and the Polk County Commission have issued burn bans effective immediately.

Under the bans, open burning is completely restricted within Bolivar city limits and Polk County.

Fires are allowed only in grills and designated fire pits.

Questions about fires in Polk County can be directed to Polk County Office of Emergency Management at 417-326-6610.
