OPEN BURNING PERMITS now required

Permits are available from Fire Station 1 at 1475 N. 15th St., and Fire Station 2, 1349 Elm Ave. For more information on the required permits or open burning, call the main fire house at 275-8666.

The permit is issued per user, who must be on site and may be responsible for burns at different addresses at different times.  The permit must be on that person during each burn.  We’ll utilize this to help better control open burning, so hopefully it doesn’t get away from people. 

Open burning is permitted only with agricultural sources and during daylight hours. No burning is allowed within 50 feet of a structure, and a garden hose connected to a water supply or other approved fire-extinguishing equipment must be available at all times.

Failure to obtain a permit is a violation of the Fire Code.
