Those periods are April 1 – 14, July 17 –  31 and October 24 through November 6 from dawn until dusk or as modified or extended by city council based primarily on weather conditions.

Due to recent moisture, the burn period has been extended through the month of May this year. Materials permitted to be burned include leaves, small twigs and grass clippings.
