Nothing rounds out a great summer day than an evening bonfire with family and friends. But before you light the kindling, make sure you have a fire permit! That includes any fires on your property, even in a Chiminea. Permits can be purchased at the Township Office as well as at several retail locations including, conveniently, Cawaja Pines. For more information click here. Please note that no fires are permitted on the beach.

We also remind all residents that starting in 2016 the burning of leaves and garden refuse is now prohibited (that includes pine needles too). Both the By-law department and the Fire Department will be enforcing this regulation. Residents caught burning will be charged and fined. This control will provide greater protection to the community.

Residents are also reminded to replace the batteries in their smoke detectors twice a year. Given the distance to the local fire station we need to take every precaution in order to prevent fires from happening.
