Due to the debris caused by the recent storm, the open burn permit fee has been waived until Labor Day.  You still need to obtain a permit through the Fire Marshal's office, but the fee has been waived.  Click HERE for permit.

If your house is unlivable as a result of the storm, please contact the Mayor's Office at 860-355-6010 so we can send someone out to your home to document the damage.
