Open Burning



The Muskegon County Air Pollution Rules & Regulations (adopted 1967, amended 1973) were repealed by the Muskegon County Board of Commissioners January 13, 2011. Public Health - Muskegon County no longer issues burn permits. Michigan law regulates most open burning and many townships, villages, and cities also regulate open burning. Michigan requires a permit for some types of open burning and individual townships, villages, or cities may also require a permit.
