The Hamilton Fire Department has a new online burning permit application system that allows residents to apply for a permit and pay online. Sign-ups started on Jan. 1 but burning will not start until Jan. 15, as in year’s past. Each day during open burning season, permit holders will need permission to burn. You can find directions on the Fire Department page on the town website. For anyone without access to a computer, permits will be accepted at the station on a limited basis only.
