The process for obtaining a burn permit within Poudre Fire Authority district changed Dec. 1.
New applications for open burning permits for addresses in Larimer County will be processed by the Larimer County Department of Health and Environment. The Poudre Fire Authority will review the permits and approve or disapprove the proposed burn. The County will then issue the permit to the customer if approved.
The rules governing open burning have not changed. The only changes to the program are who handles the paper and what the issued permit will look like.
