Burning Permit: $20
Burning without a permit:
MINIMUM $400 FINE
Puslinch Fire Chief Steven Goode wants to get the message out that open air burning without fire permits will be costly.
In his March 16 report to council, Goode said “this winter has been exceptionally warmer than in previous years and people are itching to start burning their brush.”
The mild winter and lack of snow has affected the volume of run-off from melting snow. This has a negative impact not only for farmers’ growing season but it also leaves rural areas much drier and susceptible to fires.
