On November 1, 2016 residents inside the City of Jefferson will be allowed to burn yard waste material which includes leaves, grass clippings, and small tree limbs. Any burning must be done on personal property and attended at all times. Burning in the street or storm water area isn’t permitted. Open burning is allowed from sunrise to sunset and fires must be extinguished. Fire officials report one of the biggest complaints the fire department receives is fires left smoldering in the evening hours. Trying to determine the location of these smoldering fires can be challenging due to the fact that the smoke will stay low to the ground travel through several neighborhoods with the evening having cooler temperatures and higher humidity.
Open burning is allowed from November 1, 2016 and will end on March 1, 2017. Fire officials urge residents to use caution at all times when burning yard waste.
