I just got off the phone with Michelle at the Utah County Commissioners' office and she confirmed the ban has been repealed. Wonderful day!

Note: this is only for Utah County. Does anyone know if restrictions were lifted in other counties, assuming other counties also imposed similar bans?

Here is a piece from the SLT about the Utah County Ban. I wonder how Commissioner White would have voted:


Utah County lifts campfire, shooting bans

Posted: 11:33 AM- PROVO - Utah County residents can once more light campfires and shoot guns in the unincorporated parts of the county.
The County Commission voted 2-0 on Tuesday to repeal the county's ban on open fires, fireworks and firearms discharge.
Commission Chairman Steve White was not present at the meeting.
County Fire Marshal Dennis Barker said the ban originally was set to continue until Sept. 7, but recent rains have reduced the fire danger enough to warrant lifting the ban sooner.
During the ban, the county opened its shooting range to the public. Sheriff James Tracy said, on average, 200 shooters attended every Saturday during the ban period. He said that highlights the need for a publicly funded shooting range.

I agree--a publicly-funded range would be useful.
