An Act To Eliminate Online Burn Permit Fees for All Areas of the State
Sec. 1. 12 MRSA §9326, 3rd ¶, as amended by PL 2017, c. 449, §3, is further amended to read:
A person may apply for a permit to burn using the Internet or as otherwise provided in this article. When a person applies for and is issued a permit electronically pursuant to this section, a fee of $7 must be paid. From the $7 fee, $4 must be deposited in the General Fund, $2 must be transferred to the municipality in which the permit is issued and the remainder of $1 must be used to cover administrative costs. For a permit issued in the unorganized and deorganized areas, from the $7 fee, $6 must be deposited in the General Fund and the remainder of $1 must be used to cover administrative costs.
This bill eliminates online burn permit fees for all areas of the State.
