There are some proposed new rules that will put open burning (landscape waste) under the health department rather than Planning and Development. The McHenry County Board
will not take up this ordinance change until Tuesday, December 4th after this current burning season.
Thus we will continue under the above rules.
In the Village of Spring Grove, burning may continue on any day of the week, but essentially the same rules as McHenry County apply, including months of the year,
Fox Lake has rules as well, though I do not know what they are. Sundial Farms and some homes on the east side of Wilmot Road are in Fox Lake and they would have
to follow the Fox Lake rules at least until the health department gets their new ordinance passed.
Please call or e-mail Rich Tobiasz if you have questions.
