Burn permits are available online and are required for residents living outside the city limits and located in Rural Fire District #1. Burn permits are valid for 6 months, either January-June or July-December. A county resident is allowed unlimited burns during that time but must call 913-294-4444 Option 4 before each burn. There are additional regulations that are detailed in the permit form. Completed permits may be returned to City Hall or emailed to the address on the form. Forms are also available at City Hall. City residents do not need a permit but burning is only allowed on Fridays and Saturdays.
For other non-emergency inquiries, please contact the department at 913-837-4700. The City appreciates its many dedicated volunteers that are largely responsible for achieving an impressive Level Four ISO Rating.
