A burning ban issued by the Menomonee Falls Fire Department is still in effect this week.
The MFFD issued the ban on June 14, and conditions have yet to improve. Although the village received a little rain over the weekend, it was not enough to saturate the vegetation.
Those who wish to burn in the future will need to receive permission per the village's ordinance.
Violators of the ban can be fined $177. The ban does not pertain to charcoal or gas grills.
