Forms and Permits
Burning permits can be obtained online from the DNR Website or by phone by calling 1-888-947-2876. See link to WI DNR Burning Permits in the section marked Links.
Contact Land and Water Resources at the Oconto County Courthouse at (920) 834-6827. The cost of the sign is $15.00 and it will need to be picked up at the Courthouse and put in place by the owner at their driveway location. The sign can be mailed for an additional mailing fee of $4.05 if the landowner wants the sign mailed to their home. The County has a fee schedule for the sign placement if the landowner does not want to do the work themselves.
