Reminder to all Town of Herkimer residents that the NYS Department of Environmental Conservation has banned all burning of brush and similar materials from  March 16 through May 14. Permits for burning will not be issued during this period for the Town of Herkimer. Anyone that plans on burning brush within the NYS DEC guidelines after May 14 must apply for a permit at the Town of Herkimer Offices located at 114 N. Prospect Street, Herkimer. A Town of Herkimer Fire Warden will visit the proposed burn location and review it for safety prior to the issuance of a permit.

Thank you for preventing unnecessary fire department responses this spring!
