The Town of Essex has launched a new online platform for residents and businesses to begin using for the issuance of burn permits. The burn permit ban issued April 21, 2020 has been lifted for burning in the Town of Essex outside of Essex Junction Village and residents and businesses may now apply for a permit by creating an account and logging into https://essexvt.burnpermits.com/.
The website provides additional information about what is allowable burn material and when a permit is required.
The Village of Essex Junction is restricted by ordinance to a small cooking fire and no open burning is allowed. The new online system has a geofence around the Village and permits within Village limits will not be validated.
