Rehoboth Fire Department Announcement – Open Burning Season


Open burning season is upon us again. It begins on January 15th and runs to May 1st. Please remember all three stations are closed to the public due to Covid-19 so in-person purchases will no longer be permitted.

Obtaining a Burn Permit will be done differently this year.

Residents have two options:

1. You can either mail a self-addressed, stamped envelope, along with a $5.00 check made out to the Town of Rehoboth, to 334 Anawan Street and we will mail your permit to you. Please be sure you have the correct address, name & phone number.
2. Beginning Monday, January 11th, you will be able to go to purchase on online at www.Rehobothma.gov<https://l.facebook.com/l.php?u=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.Rehobothma.gov%2F%3Ffbclid%3DIwAR1-kOrf764P3P_3w-o0QIIIueE7v37JXei3aRxOo39aKTv40EjiXHeegM0&h=AT080QRHHmRo2XVg327G4omOlzqm2hoWHvvLN1Kz9Z0tfXh5avqYBSWzG_Xg-czSd_3TBeeEY_bH1eXxIbOrYSATMN4mWU2be7sGBgeuIsAzdQa2lJ4edkk_55fBui1grMhx&__tn__=-UK-R&c%5b0%5d=AT3GlSksLkWDg2c1yWOIgVjDvlugVL7-Ap0UOCZWClfBg0TkwtXgf20N5zDWAIiiYigOUbAnbO95x1S7oxL8kEHJBDQVOREnaL1h4eTUwGmRnjKIHwknHbVPIUCANBSoapcFiOO_cn-Un6gyljKyYX13W3_F9N2lK60jSLf0TAPmWC747asPtQMb6ofrZSGeTb6F>  Once there, you need to look in the green shaded area on the left side of the homepage- "Citizens Action Center" and then on the very last tab on the bottom right open "Online Permits" tab. From there you can follow the directions.

Starting January 15th, there will be a dedicated phone number that can be called for permission to burn that day.

We hope this new system works smoothly and will be revised as needed.

Please be safe and if you believe your fire may be a bit larger than you feel you can manage please do not hesitate to call 911.
