In advance of any burning between 9/15 and 4/14, burn permits may be applied for by calling Chief Rick Massey at 828-5528, or by downloading the permit application below and bringing the completed form to our Station #1 in New Melle.
No open burning is to occur from 4/15 through 9/14, based largely on detrimental effects to the ozone layer.
In operating with your burn permit, the Missouri Department of Natural Resources guidelines for burning are as follows:
- Do not burn if winds are in excess of 5 m.p.h.
- 4’ pile maximum burning area at any one time
- All burning to be closely and continuously attended at all times, else fully extinguished
- All burning is to take place between 10:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m.
