Day County Burn Ban Ordinance #03-01

In an effort to control wild land fires within the county, The Day County Board of Commissioners have enacted Ordinance #03-01 for all of Day County.

This declaration means that all open burning is prohibited without a permit. Permits are available at the Day County Sheriff’s Office in Webster, in person or over the phone.

The permits are free of charge. This permit system will allow the county to better control when and where fires are started across the county.

Cities and towns within the county may have their own ordinances on burning or regulations. Please contact them for more information.

It is permissible without a permit to use burning barrels or similar containers if precautions are taken to prevent escape of sparks, flames or hot ashes. Example: Small camp fire device.

Parks and Recreations division and the Game Fish and Parks control their properties within the county. Please contact them for further information on their properties.
