Open Air Burning Information
An Open Air Burning
Permit By-law (By-law No. 2019-046) has been established for the purpose of enabling and regulating open air fires
throughout the Township. With the By-law in place, a Burn Permit is now
required for open air fires in Oro-Medonte. There currently is no cost for your Open Air Burning Permit, a permit is valid until December 31 of that calendar year.
The primary reason for implementing
the Open Air Burning Permit By-law is surrounding public safety. The
permitting process provides an opportunity for Fire and Emergency Services
staff to educate the public on safety tips, and preventative information.
Additionally, the Burn Permit will also assist with elimination of calls to
Fire Headquarters from residents requesting permission to burn. Issuance
of Open Air Burning Permits also ensures that Fire and Emergency Services staff
are aware of burns taking place throughout the community of Oro-Medonte.
