Effective May 14, the Payson Fire Department has suspended the issuance of open burning permits, due to high fire danger. Until the Payson area receives more precipitation, and the fire danger subsides, open burning will not be allowed.
If residents need to dispose of brush or tree trimmings, they can be taken to the RPAP brush pits, which are open on weekends. (Watch this newspaper for free brush disposal opportunities.)
The phone number for RPAP is (928) 468-8694. The Payson Fire Department and the Town of Payson appreciate understanding and cooperation in keeping Payson fire-safe.
