Illegal burning


It has been reported to Arroyo City News that illegal burning has taken place on a number of occasions in our fire zone 10. While yard burning is permitted, certain rules apply that must be followed. Here is a link to the fire department’s information on burning: http://arroyocityvfd.com/firesafety.html

The rules are stated with residential properties in mind, but the regulations apply to ALL burning in the zone – farming and commercial properties included. We understand much of the burning has been done at night which is prohibited by State law, irrespective of the rules and regulations.

The perpetrators know who they are and we appeal to them to be good neighbors and respect the law and our community.

Men’s breakfast – December 1st

The Church on the Arroyo will be hosting a men’s breakfast at 8 am on Saturday, December 1st, 2018 in the fellowship hall. Clarence and his band of helpers will do the cooking (Billy may still be in Arkansas) and everyone is welcome to come and share good food with good company! It’s always delicious.

2018 Fish Fry

It’s that time of year again. The Fire Department is having their annual Fish Fry Benefit to raise money. As you know, the county woefully under funds the Fire Department, so we have to step up to help them provide their essential service to the community. The event will be on February 24 – this is a heads up for you to mark your calendars and cancel other arrangements. See you there!
