By order of Fire Chief, Chief Davenport, open burning is hereby SUSPENDED until further notice due to the current public health crisis of COVID-19.

Under South Beloit Code of Ordinances Sec. 38-7(g), the Fire Chief is authorized to suspend open burning.

The City understands that this creates a burden for residents who would like to immediately dispose of their yard waste.  The City also has to balance an important obligation to protect the public health.

The Fire Chief has every intention to authorize open burning as soon as possible, potentially even as early as May.  More information will be released on the City’s Facebook page and City website.

Thank you for your cooperation and understanding. Should you have any questions please contact, 815-389-3097
