Beware of outside burning times

The members of the Brownsville City Council met on Oct. 1 at Brownsville City Hall for their regular monthly meeting.

Beginning in October, the outdoor burning season set by the state restricts open burning within 150 feet of any woodland or brushland between the hours of 6 a.m. and 6 p.m. during the fall and spring wildfire hazard season which runs from Oct. 1 to Dec. 15, and Feb. 15 to April 30.

There was a first reading of two ordinances; one to set the 2019 motor vehicle tax rate to $.13 per $100 assessment and the second one to set the 2018 real property tax rate and the personal/tangible property tax rate both to $.062 per $100 assessment.

The city of Brownsville is still in negotiations with KY Wired and hope to have an agreement shortly.
