The Michigan DNR controls when brush burning is allowed. Click Here for a link to their website for information on days when brush burning is allowed in each community (in Laketon Township it is for burning of clean brush/sticks only - ALL burning of grass/leaves is PROHIBITED BY DEQ rules). The DNR has advised that there are technical difficulties in updating the website, which they hope to have resolved soon- Thank you for your patience.
As of 5/25/17 the DNR informed us that brush burning is ON for today 5/25/2017. Therefore, BRUSH BURNING IS PERMITTED by order of the DNR fire officials. They will inform us when they are OFF again.
Please call Laketon Twp at 231-744-2454 between 5/26/2017 and 6/2/2017 on the day you want to burn brush to find out if brush burning is permitted or not that day - updating of this website WILL NOT take place during those dates or on the weekends (5/27 - 5/29 and 6/3 - 6/4). On the weekends, you may call the DNR fire officials directly at either 231-861-5636 or 231-788-6798. And remember - it's for burning of clean brush only! No grass, leaves, lumber or household trash!
