BURN PERMITS

NEW PROCESS! McLeod County has adopted a county wide system and the Townships no longer provide paper burning permits. Here is what you will want to do to obtain your burn permit:

  • Call into McLeod County Dispatch at 888-440-3431 and press 0 prior to burning and after the burn is complete.

  • You will be asked to provide basic information (name, location, contact info, what you are intending to burn, etc.).

  • The dispatcher will record the caller info, advise if there were any burning restrictions and if there were no restrictions, the property owner is clear to burn.

  • There is NO fee for this service.
