April 2016 RIP Joe Julia, I shall cherish the memories of a great friend and mentor.
Here we are waiting for warmer weather but I for one am glad we have this moisture to help keep the fire danger down.? There is a lot of fire mitigation to get done here on the ranch and I need some folks to sign up for the Burn Pit. If you are looking for fire wood for next year, why not help a neighbor out and sign up for the wood removal crew Please Remember that you must remove the slash as well. I will make the burn pit available to those crews on off days.
Reservoir: I would like to thank the folks that have helped me clear out some of the willows on the Dam your work is gratefully appreciated.
Horses: PLEASE DO NOT FEED THE HORSES some of them are on a special diet. ?I have room on the Pastures for 5 more horses. We will be moving them to the summer pasture (Pasture A) this year so I can get some much needed work done on the loafing shed and some drainage as well.
Restrooms at the Pavilion: The water will be turned on soon and the RV Dump Station is already open. I would like to remind folks that the water there IS NOT POTABLE.
Camp Fires: If you build a Fire pit on your property here are the rules for size CAMPFIRE SPECIFICATIONS: All belowground fire pits shall be at least four inches in depth and shall be surrounded on the outside, aboveground, by a non-combustible material such as steel, brick, or masonry. The fire pit cannot exceed three feet in diameter, nor may the fire pile exceed two feet in height.
Fire pits may be used in accordance with the manufacturer?s specifications and these regulations:
- Only natural firewood/commercial logs may be burned. o Burning of lumber, pallets, scrap wood, tree trimmings, leaves, yard waste, paper, cardboard, garbage and similar items is not permitted.
- All fire pits must be located away from any structure or combustible material.
- Belowground fire pits and freestanding fireplaces must be located a minimum of 25 feet away from any structure or combustible material. o Portable fire pits must be located a minimum of 15 feet away from any structure or combustible material.
- The fire must be constantly attended and supervised until the fire has been completely extinguished. A portable fire extinguisher or other approved extinguishing equipment, such as a garden hose, must be readily available
Rules Enforcement: If you have more than two Out Buildings on your lot and this includes Green houses then you may be in violations of Park County LURs The County Enforcement guys will be out looking this Summer.
Please be safe this Summer and watch out for children when you are driving Ranch Roads.
