The Town of Essex has launched a new online platform for residents and businesses to begin using for the issuance of burn permits.
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.
