Open Burning season runs from January 15th through May 1st. Citizens who wish to obtain a Permit for Open Burning must either call the fire station (247-9008) prior to 10am on the day they wish to burn, or request an Open Burning Permit online. Residents are encouraged to utilize the online option to request their permits.

Burning permits have a $10 fee, paid once per address, per burning season. All burning sites will be inspected by the Fire Department prior to burning on the first day you wish to burn, and individuals will have to call and request to burn each day of the season they wish to burn. Though, the fee is only paid once.

Burning regulations will be posted here in the near future, and the ability to burn is very weather dependent.
