At the October 23, 2012 Windsor Township Board of Trustees meeting it was approved by the Board to have the Emergency Services Department to start charging for certain Fire Division responses starting January 1, 2013.
Effective January 1, 2013 Windsor Charter Township will begin billing for the following services: Structure fires $500.00, Vehicle fires $500.00, Traffic Accidents $300.00, False Alarm Up to $1,000.00, Burn Permits $25.00 (annual fee, valid from January 1st – December 31st) and Illegal Burning/negligent burns/no permit Up to $1,000.00.
Chief Phil Miller said that “many of the traffic related incidents involve non township residents which put’s a burden on local finances”. “One way to correct this is to start a billing program”. If an insurance company does not cover the fee’s, the motorist will be billed themselves, only if they are non-township residents. Under the new permit process, a township resident will need to go to the Windsor Township Hall or the Emergency Services building to fill out the permit and receive a copy of the burning ordinance. Permits may be obtained at the Township Office, 405 W. Jefferson St., at a cost of $25 per calendar year. The permit is valid from January 1 until December 31st and needs to be renewed every year. Once the permit has been approved, a permitted township resident only has to call the emergency services building Monday thru Saturday between 7am and 4pm (517) 646-0893 and activate the permit. A single call activates the permit for seven days instead of 1-4 days under the old permit process. A permit is still not needed for recreational campfires or burning cardboard and papers within an approved burn barrel.
The Village of Dimondale’s current open burning ordinance which prohibits open burning other than campfires is unaffected by this change.
A copy of the Township's new burning ordinance is available here. Please direct any questions to Chief Phil Miller, 517-646-0893.
