From the Polk County Standard Journal:
The City of Cedartown is joining with Rockmart in extending the expiration of the burn ban in the area past the beginning of October.
According to Cedartown Fire Chief Darrell Stephens, the ban is being extended until the western portions of Polk County within the city limits get more rain.
The City of Rockmart announced earlier that it would extend its ban past Oct. 1 in order to prevent the potential spread of fire during drought conditions.
Stephens said the extension is currently indefinite, but that an announcement will be made when the burn ban is lifted and permits are being issued again.
