Residential - Free, available seven days a week between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m.
A Burn Permit must be obtained by the owner or occupant of the residential property where the burning will take place. Proof of ownership or occupancy must be verified by driver license, ID card, or recent utility bill statement. The Burn Permit may only be used as per the conditions on the permit.
Commercial - $25, available Monday through Friday between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m.
All commercial or second party persons wishing to burn must obtain a commercial burn permit for $25 through the Fire Marshall’s office.
