From the Town of Kearny:

  The Shipman and Kearny River Fires have taught us how devastating wildfires can be to our community.  

  Once again the current conditions are a perfect storm for a repeat of these tragic events.  As residents and homeowners we have the responsibility to protect our community and property by clearing weeds, dry grass, and dead trees from our property.  We are asking all residents to take the time to be proactive and assess the fire dangers surrounding your property and clear your property as appropriate.

  Kearny Town Code 10-1-15 covers offensive premises and will be utilized to bring properties into compliance.  If your property is deemed to be offensive under the town code the person responsible for the property has ten days to rectify the violations given on the written notice from the Kearny Police Department. Violation of this code is a class 2 misdemeanor with a fine of up to $750.00.  For additional information on the Kearny Town Code please contact town hall or the Kearny Magistrate Court.
