Call before you burn – A State Permit to start a fire is required for open burning. You do not need a permit for a fire pit for recreational use, as long as it is constructed or a manufactured pit or area that is 3′ by 3′ or less. You cannot use that pit for burning yard or other debris without a permit. Bonfires now need a permit. Any fire where you are burning structure debris requires an additional Air Pollution Permit plus a permit from the Town Fire Warden.  

Call Brenda Field at 889-5548 or John Durkee at 889-3408 for fire permits (leave your name and call back number if you get voicemail). We are allowed to give permits out over the phone by filling out our copy of the permit for you with all your information and letting you know your responsibilities. We get an update each morning from Vermont Forest, Parks and Recreation regarding conditions in our area.

Follow us on Facebook for alerts during severe weather or a major emergency. Look for department updates on our Facebook page as well.
