Do I need a permit to burn yard waste on my property?

It shall be unlawful for any person to set fire to any woodlands, grasslands, brush or slash within the city without first obtaining a written permit from the director of public safety, and without first providing some competent person or persons to be constantly in charge of such fire to prevent the spreading thereof. Such permit shall be given whenever such fire can be safely burned, having regard to public safety and the protection of wildlife in the area, and shall contain such reasonable conditions and restrictions as the director of public safety shall prescribe. It shall be unlawful for any person to willfully, negligently, or carelessly set on fire or cause to be set on fire any woods, grasslands, or other combustible material within the city by reason whereof the person or property of another is injured or endangered.
