Now you know.  We are tracking our call response.  If you are burning on a day where it isn’t allowed, or at a time of day where it isn’t allowed or burning trash, or any other violation of the ordinance, you’ll get one warning and if there is a second time, you’ll get a ticket.  Follow the ordinance and be considerate of your neighbors.
