CONSTRUCTION COMPANY DEFIES BURN BAN ORDER-REPEATED CITATIONS AND MULTIPLE TRIPS BY FIREFIGHTERS

“MAGNOLIA RIDGE DEVELOPMENT CONTINUES TO BURN”
This company believes it is cheaper to pay the fines than to pay to have the land clearing debris hauled off. They also believe that their profit from the jobs they do is more important than everyone’s local home. Maybe the power of sharing their way of doing business on FB reduces their future job potential in our area.
Multiple citations were issued today and violations of State Air Quality regulations were referred to TCEQ for further enforcement.
Magnolia Firefighters have been called repeatedly to the Magnolia Ridge Development for illegal burning conducted by employees of K&K Tree Service, the land clearing contractor for the project. This morning, an MCFMO Investigator arrived to find them starting additional fires.
The investigation continues into this site and at least one other similar operation in the area. Additional charges and enforcement actions are possible.
