New Open Air Burn Permit Process

The Township has introduced a Permanent Fire Permit process for open air burning.  This process involves a one-time application which will reduce the effort required to set up permission for an open air burn.  All applications will be reviewed by the Fire Chief and upon approval, the applicant will be able to proceed with open air burns by calling into dispatch directly to report the burn details.  Review application form and conditions for the new permit, then complete your application!  Please note - the process for small recreation burns within a ring or fire pit in backyard has not changed - these types of fires do not require a permit.

Art on Display at Township Office

The Township of Zorra is pleased to support local artists.  We are currently displaying some clay sculptures made by Phoebe Campbell of Embro; custom jewellery by Crystal McMaster of Thamesford; and an acrylic painting by Frankie Armitage of Embro.  Drop by and check out these works of art by local talent!  Do you have artwork to display at our office?  Contact Mary Anne Murphy at Oxford Creative Connections by email.
