Park County Fire Restrictions In Effect July 5th

Finally, the Park County commissioners decided to delay any fire restrictions until after the Fourth of July 2021.

In a very contested meeting, County Commissioner Loyd Thiel was adamant that a firework restriction be implemented before the fourth of July. Support for that was just not in the majority, so Loyd Theil voted with the other County Commissioners to enable a fire restriction to go into effect on July 5, 2021.

A vote unanimously passed that allowed fire and fireworks restrictions to take effect only on July 5, 2021.

Commissioner Lloyd Theil tried to get a motion passed to enact a fire and firework restriction in effect by Thursday, July 1, 2021, of which failed because the remaining County Commissioners refused to issue a second on Theil’s motion.

The small communities of Cody, Powell and Meeteetse have issued a city-wide ban that restricts fireworks within their city limits.

In the Commissioner meeting, Commissioner Joe Tilden stated, “This is the driest I have ever remembered.”

One commissioner was not present at the meeting, and that was Dossie Overfield.

Many residents, regardless of any ban, intend to celebrate the 4th of July as normal, but be very cautious of where and how they do that so as to not have fire emergencies.
