Clean Up:

The Town is already looking so nice for spring. This is a reminder to keep yards clear of clutter and remove all unregistered vehicles. The Town Bylaw is attached to this newsletter, called Abatement of Nuisances.

 

Messy and cluttered yards lead to rodent problems. Just a reminder the compost area is open for branches, grass clippings, garden materials. NO garbage bags, pallets, etc. are to be left at compost area; if they are out there the Town of Bredenbury is subject to a fine and the compost area will have to be closed.

 

Burn Permits and Fire Pits:

This is a reminder that if you want to have a burn that is not in an enclosed fire pit, you must obtain a permit from the Town office or Fire Department. There will be very few instances where you can burn in town without a fire pit; but one example might be a homeowner that lives on the outskirts of town wanting to burn a pile of grass.

 

The bylaw with regards to Outdoor Fires, this will tell you also how far your fire pit needs to be from trees and buildings as well.
