Update on May 9 prescribed burns

On May 9, 2017 firefighters from the Superior National Forest, Montana, and Oregon successfully burned the 30 acre Old Baldy Prescribed Fire Unit and the 41 acre North Arm 8 Prescribed Fire Unit both located north of the North Arm of Burntside Lake and south of Slim Lake and the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness (BWCAW). Good weather conditions of wind speed and direction, temperature, and relative humidity helped produce a very nice understory burn for fuels reduction and ecosystem management.

Both of these prescribed fire units are well contained and will be patrolled for hotspots.

City cracking down on illegal, improper use of public trash cans

by Tom Coombe
Local residents and visitors to the area may want to think twice about dumping their garbage in downtown trash cans or the canisters at Whiteside Park.
Action taken by the city council this week could lead to stiff fines - perhaps as much as $300 - for those caught illegally dumping trash.
Tired of bulging trash bins downtown and in the park, particularly during the summer months, city officials decided to take action.
Tuesday, they amended an ordinance regulating the “storage, deposit and disposal of refuse.”
Added were two new subdivisions.
One makes it unlawful to put non-recyclable items into the bins at the city’s recycling center, while the other prohibits disposing of household or business garbage in cans provided by the city of Ely in places with high pedestrian traffic, such as those downtown or in city parks.
