Online Burning Permits
Construction began on the new addition to the Police Department on Monday October 9th. We quickly realized that there would be obstacles issuing fire permits the way we have done for so many years, because the entrance to dispatch is completely blocked.
Due to the length of time that this project will take, the Police and Fire-Rescue Departments have made the decision to stop issuing hand written fire permits. Instead we will use a third party electronic fire permit website called Warden’s Report. This program is being used by many other fire departments across the state with success.
Fire permits will remain FREE of charge and you can obtain a burning permit via computer, tablet or cell phone by following the link below:
The link will take you to the Warden’s Report website where you will select YORK COUNTY, and then BUXTON in the drop-down menu. You will then be asked to read the States outdoor burning regulations and click a box acknowledging that you have read and understand the regulations. The system will ask for you to input the permit information, which is the same information that residents were asked to provide previously on a paper burning permit.
We apologize in advance for any inconvenience. Although we hope that this saves you time in travel to and from dispatch, also in fuel costs.
