PRESCRIBED BURN

The city plans to conduct a prescribed burn today at Outlot 11 off of Glacier Ridge Road and the prairie north of Graber Pond.

Why Burn?

Burning activities are a part of an overall vegetative management plan in large part to control exotic species while promoting establishment of native grasses and flowers.  Use of fire lessens the need for herbicide use and other labor intensive techniques such as brush cutting and mowing. 

The frequency of prescribed burning in each area will vary depending on plant communities involved and restoration objectives.

Recovery Efforts

The City submitted damage to FEMA and Middleton was included in the Federal Disaster Declaration in October.  We are awaiting further instruction from FEMA regarding scope of services and putting projects to bid for construction.
