New open burning permit process
The fire department has instituted a new procedure for the issuance of open burning permits.
Home owners wishing to obtain an open burning permit for the 2005 season (January 15 - April 30) will need to go to the communications center in the police station located at 41 Lowell Street to register. This will only need to be done once and there will be no fee. The home owners will receive a copy of the "Open Burning Permit Rules & Regulations" and a "Home owner Registration Form", and a home owner registration number is assigned. All rules regarding open burning still apply. Once the home owner has a registration number, a call to the fire department (1-978-369-1442 ) on the day of desired burning is all that needs to be done to obtain a permit. Home owners must keep the registration that is issued containing the rules and number. Registration numbers are assigned to the home owner for as long as they reside at the same address. In order to obtain a permit to burn the home owner must be registered.
For questions regarding this process you may call the Fire Prevention office and leave a message at 1-978-287-0072.
