    Sheriff Jeff Hodge reminds the community that fire restrictions have been put in place for the county – and that this decision was made for a reason. The county fire warden has determined that the dry conditions have created high fire hazards. Despite these conditions, individuals in recent days are known to have been setting off fireworks within the limits of the City of Sundance. This, says Hodge, is not against the county’s fire restrictions, but it is a breach of city ordinances. Specifically, it violates municipal ordinance 7, section 8:...
