Currently, small recreational fires are still allowed, however, you MUST follow the Open Air Burning rules.

To reduce the risk to our fire fighters, there will be zero tolerance for those not following the rules.
Alternate Day Outdoor Watering Restrictions until Sept. 15

With the dry weather, please remember that Middlesex Centre has an alternate day outdoor watering program. Even numbered addresses should water on even days and odd numbered addressed on odd days. Special rules apply for gardens and new lawns.
