Being a By-Law to Establish Open Air Burning Procedures
FIRE SEASON 2015
The Municipality has an open air burning By-Law; By-Law 2014-16, this by-law regulates times and conditions where residents can burn out doors. Along with that there are Rules and Regulations in which you must adhere to.
The new by-law now enforces burning throughout the entire year, where in the past you needed a permit only from April to November now you need a permit to burn all year long.
If the Fire Department is called out to extinguish a Fire at your residence and it is determined that the Regulations were not followed YOU WILL be CHARGED. Fines are set out in the By-Law.
