There are many burning leaves and trash weekly. I mentioned the No burn to a neighbor and He said He’s been burning since his grandparents purchased the home. He obviously want to pay a fine.

Its way to dry to be burning anything right now. Even in enclosed pits, or throwing cigarette butts out the window. Last week there were major fires north of us that required something like 10 departments and the DNR to put out. At least 30 acres of forest burned, that I know of. Until we get more rain, we should wait.

too many fires this spring

So do you inforce and issue citations or PD and Whom gets the $$$$ from them ? Does it go into education or equipment fund ect....

How much for a recreational burn permit..I have a fire ring surrounded by cement blocks and would enjoy a nice small fire on a Friday evening

Yet the other option is damn near impossible if u rent. Cuz only the ACCOUNT HOLDER can order another can and its nearly $100! My landlord keeps ignoring requests even if i pay in advance. Many ppl are left w no option.

I had no idea, my whole block burns all the time.

Just a suggestion, mail every residence a notice via the United States Postal Service. Everyone received a letter notifying residents of the "Neighborhood" app. Everyone does NOT use social media. Thank you for all ya'll do.

Well thats too bad aint it what are you gonna do about it? Huh? Install shitty ass cameras and spy on people?? Get over yourselves they are leaves not like someone's trying to set fire to the forest. Get bent. I'll burn leaves in my own damn fire pit if I so choose. Not gonna let some scam site tell me what I can and can't do on my property.
