This ordinance applies to the requirement for obtaining a verbal burning permit for any fires being set, except for warming of the person or cooking of food. Before setting a fire, you must get a verbal permit from the Almena Fire Chief, currently Vince Wohlk, at 715-418-1971, and then contact the Barron County Sheriff’s Dispatch Center at 715-537-3106 to let them know of the impending fire. Any person who violates this ordinance shall be fined no less than $50 plus the cost of the labor to extinguish the fire.
Placement of mail boxes are specified within the Town ordinances.

Any mail boxes that do not meet these requirements may be removed by the Town and billed to the property owner. For questions about mail box placements, please contact the Town Chairman.
