SPRING VALLEY — Todd Bogatitus, fire chief of the Spring Valley Fire Department, has issued the following statement:

Effective immediately, the city of Spring Valley is initiating a ban on burning this spring. This ban will continue until further notice.

Respiratory issues brought on by COVID-19 has forced us to make changes to how we operated on a daily basis, and this is one of the changes we have to make to look out for the safety of everyone in the our community.

We will continue to monitor the situation and notify everyone once this ban has been lifted. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation. Stay safe, everyone.
