16.16.040. Burning by permit

            Any type of open burning not specifically listed in Section 16.16.030 requires a permit prior to initiating the burning.  When not prohibited by other laws or other officials having jurisdiction, and when no nuisance is created, open burning is permitted under the terms of an individual permit issued by the Fire Department or its authorized agent, under a "clearing index" system approved and coordinated by the Utah State Department of Environmental Quality, or when specifically allowed by the committee following written application and appropriate hearing.

            This Section does not prohibit burning deemed necessary by the Fire Chief for emergency or protective purposes with regard to the public's health, safety, and welfare.
