Open Burning

Open Burning

Open burning of brush will start on January 15th and end on May 1st.  Permits will be available at the Central Fire Station located at 668 Tremont Street starting on January 2nd.  Permits can be purchased for $10.00 from 8:00 am to 4:00 pm Monday through Friday.  Starting on January 3rd, permits can be purchased on Saturday and Sunday from 9:00 am to 2:00 pm.  Only checks will be accepted for the purchase of burn permits.  NO CASH will be accepted.

We encourage residents to complete their burning early in the season while there is snow on the ground.

In an effort to assist residents with questions about Open Air Burning, we have provided several links that will help explain why we follow the guidelines that we do regarding Open Air Burning of Brush.  These guidelines are not developed at the local level but enforcement of them does fall on the organizations at the local level.
