Open Burning Prohibited within the Town
The Town has been in discussion with the SE Weld Fire District and will no longer issue burn permits. The Board of Trustees approved Ordinance 2021-02 on February 16, 2021, to prohibit open burning with the exception of burning of irrigation ditches or burning in the course of an agricultural operation for crop promotion, but any person who intends to burn for these purposes must first obtain a permit. Open burning may be restricted or prohibited on any day or at any time due to current or expected weather, atmospheric or local conditions.
Please remember: the Town holds two free dump days in Spring and Fall to clear your yard of dead trees and limbs.
