    RE: NEW 2020 Open-Air Burning Permits:

    The Smooth Rock Falls Fire Department will be issuing NEW 2020 Open Air Burning Permits. Please be advised that when we do an inspection, we will respect the social distancing measures and we ask residents to do the same. We will not exchange money for the permit, you will receive an invoice in the mail from the Town of Smooth Rock Falls for $25 to pay for your permit. The Fire Chief will conduct an inspection ensuring guidelines are met, along with pictures of the installation. For tenants you must have written approval from the owner of the property. If you currently have a 2019 Open Air Burning Permit, please be advised it is valid until further notice and you will receive a letter in the mail with further updates on when you can renew.
