  • Open-Burning Season Has Started

    Fire Marshal Bill Halstead said this week that the open-burning season has started.

    Residents who wish to do open burning should go to the fire marshal’s office at Newtown Municipal Center, 3 Primrose Street, to fill out an open-burning permit form. A fee of $5 is required. Office hours are 8 am to 4:30 pm, Monday through Friday.

    Open burning is only allowed to dispose of brush. The open burning of trees, stumps, roots, leaves, grass, construction materials, and garbage is prohibited.
