2016 - Ottawa County Signed Resolution

2016 - Information and Questions

Ottawa County Pre-Registration Form

 On January 11, 2016 Ottawa County Commissioners signed a new resolution controlling burning within the boundaries of Ottawa County.  On Monday, October 24, 2016 Ottawa County Commissioners signed a new resolution with revisions to the original resolution signed on January 11, 2016.

 This original resolution establishes a two-step approach to burn control by requiring that prior to any act of open burning, a person seeking to perform an act of open burning must: (1) pre-register with the Ottawa County Emergency Management and obtain a registration number identifying that individual; (2) on the day they wish to burn, call Ottawa County Dispatch with their registration number and obtain a Burn Notice Number ("BNN"). The main revision signed on October24, 2016 state that absolutely NO burning shall take place within 150 feet of any structure, oil tank or vehicle(s) not owned or operated by the Registrant.


Call Ottawa County Sheriff's Office prior to starting and after completing any controlled burns with your burn registration number!  Wind speeds must be 15 mph or below before any controlled burns are allowed.
