ZONING BOARD OF APPEALS MEETING:
UPDATE: The temporary ban on burning leaves and landscape waste has been extended until June 30, 2020
The Village of Roscoe in cooperation with the Harlem-Roscoe Fire Protection District is enacting an immediate ban on all open burning of landscape waste including brush, leaves, sticks, stumps, pine needles, agricultural vegetation and other debris during the remaining period of the Executive Order, currently in place until April 30, 2020. These restrictions are being put into place out of an abundance of concern for the well being of those with respiratory illness, and for the preservation of emergency first responder resources as we endure this period of pandemic health crisis. It is imperative that police, fire, and ambulances be available for the increase in life safety calls, and that they not be diverted to deal with issues arising from the burning of leaves and other landscape materials.
As always, Village of Roscoe residents are able to place unlimited amounts of leaves and yard waste out for curbside pickup. Materials should be placed in designated kraft paper bags, or reusable containers clearly marked ‘Yard Waste’.
Clean burning of firewood for recreational or warming purposes will still be permissible, but must be restricted to fire pits or other designated fire containment devices. The burning of fuels specific to outdoor cooking such as propane, natural gas, and charcoal will also still be allowed in designated grills or other outdoor cooking appliances.
Your cooperation with this temporary restriction is greatly appreciated and will contribute to the health and safety of us all. Violations of this order may be subject to possible fines of up to $750.00.
