Fire Permits Update as of 12/14/2016

With the new snowfall now covering the ground the requirement’s of Fire Permits has changed:

Permits ARE NOT required when the ground is completely covered with snow at least 100’ radius around the brush plie or fire pit.

The ONLY MATERIALS allowed to be burned remains the same. ONLY CLEAN UNTREATED WOOD that has not been attached to a structure is allowed to be burned PERIOD. No trash, card board, treated wood, painted wood, plywood, particle board, plastic trim, or any other material other than clean untreated wood. This is an EPA requirement!!

You are still responsible for any damage to any property resulting in the fire getting away from you and he costs of extinguishing that fire. It would be wise to check with your property liability insurance provider to make certain you’re covered for a loss of this type before lighting your fire.

If you have any questions regarding open burning, please call 603-383-9555.

Thank you,

L. Patrick Roberts

Fire Chief / Warden

Winter Regulations

The Selectmen want to remind residents of the town winter regulations:

  1. No parking is allowed on any town roads and cars will be towed if they are blocking snow removal. This parking ban is on 24 hrs. a day seven days a week until May 1.
  2. You may not plow or snow blow across or into a town road. This leaves humps and ruts in the road and creates a safety problem for the snowplow operators.
