Over the Memorial Day holiday weekend, the Navajo County Sheriff’s Office issued 11 citations for violation of the Stage 2 Navajo County Burn Ordinance throughout the county. These citations were issued to individuals who were residents of Navajo County, as well as visitors to the county.  Among those receiving citations were a firefighter and a law enforcement officer. As a reminder, there is a zero tolerance for violations of the county fire restrictions. Deputies will issue all appropriate citations without warnings.
