In the event the permittee does not comply with all burning regulations, the Fire Department may issue the permittee a citation.

CONTRACTOR REGULATIONS: Contractors will only be allowed three (3) permitted burns during the normal course of construction. Contractors may control fires with a suitable fire control device, such as a pay-loader, caterpillar, or tractor loader in addition to an operable garden hose or fire extinguisher.
