Unfortunately, we are unable to provide water for pools. There are numerous reasons but chief among them is it is in violation of health codes for us to provide water in this manner.
In years past Ladonia Volunteer Fire Department rented out the civic center for events however with on going construction we have decided to stop renting it out. It is unknown at this time if we will open it back up for rental once the renovations are complete.
Under ADEM regulations, non-agricultural burns are not allowed during the months of May, June, July, August, September, and October. Counties include Baldwin, Dekalb, Etowah, Jefferson*, Lawrence, Madison, Mobile, Montgomery, Morgan, Russell, Shelby, and Talladega. In an effort to uphold these restrictions, the Alabama Forestry Commission (AFC) does not issue burn permits for miscellaneous burns or for land clearing in these counties in these months. Burn permits may only be issued for: (1) wildlife, (2) hardwood control, (3) other understory, (4) piled debris (for silvicultural site prep only), (5) scattered debris, and (6) agriculture. For more information contact Don Barron, ADEM, 334-271-7879.

Items that are never okay to burn: trash, tires, houses, cars, plastics, paints and other chemicals, Styrofoam and anything else deemed bad for the environment.
