REMINDER TO ALL LANCASTER TOWN RESIDENTS:
The Open Burning Season ended Friday May 1st at 4:00pm. This is a DEP (Department of Environmental Protection) regulation; 310 CMR 7.00, MGL c111. The Fire Department DOES NOT have the authority to extend the burning season without DEP approval. We understand it has been a long and harsh winter but believe it or not, the ground is dry and the fire department has already had to battle several brush fires this season. With the warmer weather approaching, it will only allow for more fires to spread. We thank you for your Understanding!
