Fall open burning: Oct. 15-Nov. 30, 2014

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.
  • 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.
