Edmonson County Judge Executive Wil Cannon signed a proclamation that declared Edmonson County will be recognizing April 5, 2019 as Arbor Day.
Judge Cannon signed the proclamation during today's regular fiscal court meeting. The proclamation was submitted by Forest Ranger Tech Chris Scott and Regional Ranger Mark Wiedewitsch from the Campbellsville branch of the KY Division of Forestry.
The rangers also presented a check in the amount of $1069.17 to the fiscal court. The money is restitution collected from the Division of Forestry from landowners that pay fines for violations of burn bans during burn seasons.
