Burn Permits in Eureka Charter Township
Due to the “stay home, stay safe” executive order, burn permits are currently suspended. Burning yard debris is the top cause of wildfires in Michigan. Suspending burn permits reduces the potential for wildfires, which will limit the risk of exposing first responders to coronavirus and make sure trained personnel and equipment are available to assist with COVID-19 response as needed.
A burn permit is not required for cooking or recreational campfires.

The Township Hall will be open on Tuesday, April 21 until 4:00 pm to candidates dropping off their nominating petitions and affidavit of identity.
We are also available before that date, Mondays thru Thursdays, 9:00 am to 1:00 pm. Please knock on the door so someone can collect your documents.
