Citizens can buy permits through the new website
Beginning November 24, citizens of Beaverhead County, MT will be able to purchase a burning permit without leaving their homes.
Developed in partnership with NIC Montana, the Beaverhead County Burning Permit Service is available online at burnpermits.mt.gov. With the new website, citizens will have instant access to purchase permits, add multiple burn locations to a single permit, and print permits at home or email each other permits. The online service accepts debit and credit cards as well as electronic checks (eCheck).
Citizens can activate a permit online or by calling the county’s new automated phone system at (833) 216-3454. The Burn Permit Service displays real-time updates on an interactive county map when a customer activates a permit by entering the permit number and the start and end times of the burn. County fire and emergency personnel can use the service to monitor current burning activity in the county.
Citizens can still obtain a burn permit in person at the Beaverhead County DES office, 2 South Pacific St., Suite 12, in Dillon. Payment must be made in cash or by check for permits purchased in person. New and renewed permits cost $ 3 and are valid throughout the current calendar year. Renewed permits will not be available for purchase until the start of the new burn season on January 1, 2021.
