OPEN BURNING RULES:

  • Only dry leaves, brush and landscape waste may be burned. Burning of any other items is prohibited.
  • Burning may occur only during daylight hours on non-windy days.
  • Per the fire chief, a burning ban will be in effect when there are sustained winds or gusts of 10 mph or more. Residents are encouraged to listen to the weather forecast for predicted wind speeds.
  • The material being burned must be in small piles.
  • The burn must be supervised at all times by a responsible adult.
  • The fire must be completely extinguished when finished.
  • A water source must be nearby.

Residents are asked to check with their neighbors prior to burning brush in case they have health problems which might be affected by smoke, so that an appropriate time to burn can be arranged.
