Due to the “stay home, stay safe” executive order (https://www.michigan.gov/whitmer/0,9309,7-387-90499_90705-522626–,00.html) , We want to remind you that open burning is not allowed in the Village of Lawton.
Burning yard debris is a top cause of wildfires in Southwest Michigan. By being especially vigilant, we will limit the risk of exposing first responders to coronavirus and make sure trained personnel and equipment are available to assist with COVID-19 response as needed.
A backyard burn pit or patio unit are still allowed. For more information see our website Notice
