Emmons County has instituted a Burn Ban in effect from March 12th through October 1, 2016.

 

THE PENALTY FOR VIOLATION OF THIS BURN BAN IS A CLASS B MISDEMEANOR (NDCC 37-17.1-10.1:  MAXIMUM SENTENCE OF 30 DAYS IN JAIL AND $1,500 FINE).



Emmons County was organized in 1883 and has a colorful history. Its early political history had a virtual battle waged between Linton and Williamsport. It eventually ended up in Linton, after moving the county seat to Linton the Patterson lean-to was used until an official courthouse was built in 1901 and has had 3 different courthouse buildings. The current building was constructed in 1934.

 

Today we are still running county government out of the 1934 Courthouse. There are currently 33 officials and staff and 5 commissioners that manage the county’s government issues.
