Calhoun is dry as a bone, an early onset of drought-like conditions. Farmers are concerned about the spring growing season as the Division of Forestry is concerned about an outbreak of forest fires in what is usually a safe time of the year.

Restricted burning is in effect through May 31. You cannot burn between 7 a.m. and 4 p.m. and must maintain a ten foot cleared space down to the soil around the open fire. It must be attended. If a fire gets out of control, the person responsible will pay for the costs of fighting the fire or other damages.

The Grantsville Volunteer Fire Department will continue to haul water to area residents. New donation rates are required from all residents needing non-potable water:

2000 gallon - $40

1000 gallon - $30

Water for pools is an additional $15.00 per load.

The GVFD advises residents who need water to call the answering machine at the fire station 354-6566, leaving name, address and phone number. It will no longer be necessary to track down VFD members.

The department will deliver water "as quickly as possible." Payment must be received by GVFD prior to subsequent deliveries.
