June 17-- Toombs County Commission Chairman Buddy West has issued an official statement supporting the ban on burn permits that is currently in effect for Toombs County.  The Georgia Forestry Commission has advised the local office not to issue burn permits due to the dry weather.

Chairman West is encouraging all citizens to comply with the ban and he anticipates the permit restrictions to last no more than thirty days.  "We request that all citizens not burn any material at this time for the protection of the lives and property of all Toombs County citizens," said West.
