Burning Permits Permits are required for burn barrels and brush burning in the Town of Grant. Burning permits are available at Plain Sense Printing, 744 Main Street, Caroline, Wisconsin. Only the following items can be burned in barrels: leaves, plant clippings, paper, cardboard, and clean untreated wood. However, clean paper and cardboard should be recycled rather than burned. Prohibited materials include household garbage, wet food scraps, plastics, foam, synthetic materials, treated/painted wood, asphalt, rubber and other man-made materials. Burning prohibited materials releases harmful chemicals, such as dioxins, mercury, and lead into the air, soil and water of our beautiful state. Please use burn barrels sparingly and do not burn prohibited materials. Thank you. Building Permits Residents are reminded that since January 1, 2001, the Town of Grant has adopted an ordinance complying with the regulations set forth by the State of Wisconsin Uniform Dwelling Code. All new home construction, garages, decks, outbuildings, changes in heating, air conditioning, plumbing systems, and remodeling upgrades to existing structures in excess of $1,000.00 require a building permit. Residing, re-roofing, painting or refinishing of interior surfaces, and the installation of cabinetry may be exempt unless the project results in a change to the original structure of the home. Building permits may be obtained from Larry Joos, Town of Grant Building Inspector. Driveway Permits Permits are required for the installation of a culvert, construction of new driveways, or the modification of existing driveways. Permit applications are available from the clerk, chairman, road maintenance employee, and building inspector.
