Fencing Materials Available for Area Hit by 2012 Wildfires
CHADRON, Neb. (AP) —
Free fencing materials are available to Nebraskans who own property
along U.S. Forest Service land that was burned in the 2012 wildfires.
U.S. Forest Service is taking applications for the materials through
Oct. 18 at the Pine Ridge Ranger District, less than three miles south
Eligible landowners have to sign an agreement with the
U.S. Forest Service. They also have to meet Forest Service
specifications when installing the fence, and complete the project by an
agreed-upon deadline. After an inspection, land owners will assume
ownership of the fences and responsibility for ongoing maintenance.
Forest Service officials say fencing materials are limited. Anyone interested can call the district office at 308-432-0300.
