Open Burning Season is here! You can now apply and pay for your permit online.
Open air burning can only occur between January 15th and May 1st by state regulations. Amherst Fire Department personnel will come and conduct an inspection and issue you a burning permit once the permit fee has been paid. Don't wait until the day you want to burn to call for a permit! Their crews are very busy during warm spring weekends so there may be a delay in getting your permit if you wait until the last minute. Get your permit now and be ready for the nice weather. You don't have to have your brush pile made yet - they just need to see where you are going to burn and review the regulations with you. Call their business office at 413-259-3082 if you have any questions.
