Recreational Fire Permits Are Required
Permits from Red, White and Blue Fire Department are required for fires in residential fire pits and wood burning cooking devices.
Click on this link to apply for a permit. This is the platform to create your individual profile and then apply for a permit. Once you have applied RWB Fire will perform an inspection prior to approval. The process usually takes several days and will occur Mondays thru Fridays. Once approved, the permit is valid for two years. Currently, there is no cost associated with these permits.
Please Clean Up After Your Pets
Please keep our mountain environment clean and always pick up after your dogs.
Most of our residents are very good about doing this anyway, but there are a few that never pick up after their dogs. Also, please don’t leave your poop bag on the side of the road. Dispose of it properly.
Do not let your pets run off leash to poop on your neighbor’s property. Not only is that being an inconsiderate pet owner, but it may be a violation of Summit County’s leash laws. The County requires all off-leash pets to be under control and within 10 feet of a person competent to control and restrain the pet. Click here for more information.
Thank you for you cooperation.
Summit County Chipping Program
Monday, June 14th
Summit County will conduct their Chipping Program again this year, coming to Silver Shekel the week of June 14-18, earlier than usual. The County provides free chipping and disposal of branches, logs and small trees. If you clear woody vegetation from around your home and stack it in neat slash piles, they will chip it and haul it away at no direct cost. This is a great opportunity to help you create a wildfire defensible space around your home. Click here for more details.
Please have your piles next to the street before 8:00 am Monday morning June 14th.
