Open-Air Controlled Burning

During the warmer seasons, we get a lot of calls for burn permits. While it's great that residents are notifying staff of their intent to have open-air fires, some residents still burn without confirming they have permission to do so.

We wish to remind all residents that leaving a message does not mean you have permission to burn. All staff at the Municipal Office can address your request, so before you choose to leave a message, instead speak to reception staff; they can help you.

Summer is a common season for brush fires, forest fires and accidental fires. Don't be the cause!  Please stay with the controlled burn at all times and ensure the fire is fully extinguished at dark. NOTE: Leaving a message with this information does not give you permission to burn. You must obtain approval directly with staff.
