GRANTS PASS – Hazardous fuel reduction work will continue at Dollar Mountain this week as crews begin thinning out dense underbrush and cutting lower limbs off trees. The work will begin at 7 a.m. Tuesday, June 29, and continue through July 15. General work hours may fluctuate and occur as early as 5 a.m. on some days.
The work is being conducted through a grant obtained by the city’s Firewise Coordinator Rick McClintock in coordination with Tyler Averyt and the Oregon Department of Forestry. The $438,000 grant was the largest awarded in the state through the ODF program.
Averyt will work in coordination with contractors to complete the work. The material will be gathered in piles to dry out over the summer and then safely burned during the winter months.
