Burning Permits

The Renville County Board has passed an ordinance authorizing and regulating the conduct of open burning within Renville County.  Rural Renville County property owners and occupants no longer have to obtain a burning permit from the License Bureau or pay a fee to burn.  Permission for open burning is extended to all rural residents in the County, provided burning conforms to all other provisions of this ordinance and state law.  The owner or occupant of a property shall notify the Renville County Law Enforcement Dispatch office at 320-523-1161 each day before starting an open fire and each subsequent day if the fire carries over from day to day.

The Law Enforcement Dispatch office will keep a record of who is burning, where they are burning and what they are burning.
