How Do I Know If I Need a Burning Permit?
To respect the busy lives of our Volunteer Fire Fighters, the Village has established times when burning is acceptable:
Monday through Friday - 4:00 pm until 8:00 pm
Saturday - 8:00 am until 8:00 pm
NO Sunday or Holiday burning
Permits are required depending upon the size of the parcel and the amount of materials to be burned.
On any size parcel, if you are burning in a small 4’ x 4’ fire ring, you do not need a permit.
Campfires or cooking fires in the 4’ x 4’ area are allowed
Parcels less than 2 ½ acres may burn in a 4’ x 4’ fire ring only.
Parcels greater than 2 ½ acres but less than 5 acres you may burn in a 4’ x 4’ fire ring with no permit.
If you have more brush you may obtain a permit for up to a 10’ x 10’ Area.
Parcels greater than 5 acres can burn in the 4’ x 4’ fire ring and up to a 10’ x 10’ area without a permit but any larger area requires a permit.
No ditch burning is allowed at any time in any area.
Only clean untreated wood, clean paper products and vegetation may be burned.
Recycling and composting of those materials is strongly encouraged.
Burning should be your last alternative. Burning of plastic, garbage, asphalt, treated or painted wood, rubber or oily substances is prohibited.
When burning a 10’ x 10’ area or larger with the permit, we ask residents to call the Brown County Dispatch Center to tell them when you will be burning. That number is 391-7470. Always keep a garden hose available to extinguish the fire. If your fire gets away, you will be liable for all expenses incurred in suppressing the fire and will be responsible for all damages caused by the fire. If you have any questions, please contact the Village Office at 920-869-1011.
