Burn Permits in Eureka Charter Township
According to the Eureka Charter Township Ordinance #25, you MUST have a burn permit to burn in the township. Rules and regulations are explained in section (8) eight of Ordinance #25.
Applications to burn are available on our website under the FORMS tab and then under the PERMITS AND APPLICATIONS section. A burn application must be filled out and approved by the Zoning Administrator before you will get any permit numbers. The application only needs to be filled out once and is FREE, then you may come in or call to be issued a new number. This number is only good for up to (4) days. When you receive your current number then you must call the county dispatch at (616) 225-8500 to notify them of your plan to burn and provide your permit number. This should be done before you burn. If you burn without a permit, and the fire department is called, you will be issued a ticket for an illegal burn. The maximum fine can be up to $500. If you have any questions please contact Eureka Charter Township and request to speak with the Zoning Administrator. Please leave a message and you will be contacted by the next business day.
