Are address numbers required on my home or business?
All residents and businesses are required to display address numbers.  The display of address numbers is very important since this will ensure the fire department can respond to an emergency in a timely manner.

Do I need a permit for a recreational fire?
Recreational fires do not require a permit. However, if you have a brush pile that is beyond the guidelines for a recreational fire, please stop by City Hall for an Open Burn Permit. We are open 8:00 am ~ 4:30 pm Monday - Friday.  If your fire is beyond the guidelines for a recreational fire, and you do not have an open burn permit an illegal burn citation could be issued.
