Chipper Days will be delayed for some time this year. The brutal weather has delayed residents' ability to remove dead and down trees and to clear brush. More importantly, our 5-year Chipper Days Utah State DNR grant ran out last year. We had been able to stretch it to 7 years last year by just squeaking in under the deadline (which is why the end date was April 17, when it was normally late May the previous 6 years) in order to use the last of the funding.
We will be attempting to get at least "some" funding for an abbreviated Chipper program, likely to include the Highlands area only, but we don't know when, if, or how. We were disappointed to recently learn we were unsuccessful in obtaining the US Forest Service Community Wildland Defense Grant which we were hoping to get. We will keep the community posted on our website and by stick-in signs IF indeed we are successful in potentially running the abbreviated program.
The Highlands area of Mountain Green is an extreme danger fire zone because of the dense vegetation intermingled closely with homes. Contact MGFPD (email and phone listed in contacts) if you have questions.

Change your carbon monoxide (CO) and smoke alarm batteries twice a year and test your system regularly. Many detectors expire after 10 years - some sooner! How old are yours? The date of manufacture is usually printed on the back.
