Burn Permits in Eureka Charter Township

According to Eureka Charter Township Ordinance #25, you MUST have a burn permit to burn in the Township.  See rules and regulations in section 8 of Ordinance #25.  

Applications to burn are available on our website under Forms and in our office.  A burn application must be filled out and approved by the Zoning Administrator before you will get a permit number.  Once you have that number you MUST call Dispatch at 616-225-3500 to get final approval. Once that original form is on file, you can be issued a permit number good for 4 days at a time.  You may call or come in to get a new permit number each time you need to burn.

You do NOT need a burn permit if burning in a fire pit or burning barrel with a grate or cover.  If you have any questions, please contact Eureka Charter Township and ask to speak with the Zoning Administrator.
