The City of Perryville could not be any more thankful for rain than it is right now.
The area received enough precipitation and the conditions were right to lift the city’s “no burn” order on July 5.
“By order of the Chief of Police, and in conjunction with the Fire Chief, the City of Perryville hereby immediately rescinds the No Burn Order that was issued on June 29, 2023.” Perryville Chief of Police Dierk Hunt said in a release.
The area had more than two inches of rain during the afternoon on July 5, which was enough to rescind the ban.
The ban postponed the fireworks display that was scheduled for July 3 that is put on by the Perryville Rotary Club each year. The organization is still working on a new date for the event.
