RE: Prescribed Burning Notification

The Minneapolis Public Works Department has contracted with Wetland Habitat Restorations to conduct a prescribed burn at the storm water pond near your property. The burn is tentatively set for the week of April 27th 2015 weather dependent.

You have received this letter as a courtesy to make you aware of this upcoming burn. This is important to us to prevent unnecessary calls and concerns from those of you living in visual proximity to the burn area. The burn will be conducted very slowly and carefully to minimize any smoke outputs. However, as a precaution, it may be recommended to keep windows closed if possible during the burn day in case unforeseen wind gusts carry drifts of smoke to nearby areas.

If you have questions or concerns with this prescribed burn, please contact me by phone or text at (612) 597-9809 or by email at Paul.chellsen@minneapolismn.gov
