DYER | Establishing an open burning fee could be tricky given current laws, Town Attorney Bill Enslen cautioned the Town Council.

Deputy Fire Chief Bob Bonin asked for a $250 open burning fee on behalf of the department.

“I think (residents) should be fined” for fires that result in a call to the fire department, he said. Such calls rack up manpower and equipment costs, Bonin said.

Enslen said he would review the matter and present his findings at a future study session. However, current law stipulates that fines be levied in situations when fires are the result of fuel spills or some type of hazardous material.
