Burn Permits

The application for open burning can be downloaded at the link below. It must then be filled out, and faxed back to the state for approval. Once approved it will be returned to the applicant who is responsible for delivering a copy to the Fire Department Administrative Offices located in City Hall at 601 Colorado Ave prior to burning. Upon delivery to the Fire Department, the permit will be evaluated and further approved or denied. The FD evaluation process may require a site inspection to aid in the FD approval process.
