Weber County Fire Marshal Ted Black has announced that, this year, the spring open burn period for Weber County’s upper Valley (Ogden Valley) will be from May 1 through May 31. Agricultural burn permits may be issued again after October 1. Farmers requiring burn permits between June 1 and September 30 must contact Fire Warden Dave Vickers. Burn permits during these summer months shall only be issued by the Fire Warden or at his direction. The open burn window for lower Weber County is April 1 through April 30. Again, general burn permits will be issued in the fall beginning October 1. Ogden Valley residents may obtain burn permits from the Eden or Huntsville Fire District Station. Regular business hours are Monday through Friday, and Saturdays from 8:00 a.m. to noon. A written burn permit identifies products that may be burned and general safety requirements. The permits authorize permit holders to start and maintain a fire under prescribed conditions and serves as a notification of intent to burn. The permit does not relieve an individual from personal liability due to damages should the fire escape control. Permits are issued for agricultural type products and growing vegetation only and include the following: burning of weed growth along ditch banks incident to clearing for irrigation purposes; burning of weeds and brush along fence lines; stubble; leaves; and prunings from trees, bushes, and plants. Permits may not be issued for burning trash, garbage, waste, lumber, tires, or oil based products. For additional information, contact Weber Fire District Fire Marshal Ted Black at 782-3580.
