There is STILL a burn ban in effect for Jewell County, Kansas. Open burning of any kind is prohibited. For those that want to do controlled burn of any kind, they need to notify the Fire Chief in their district, and obtain approval before burning. They need to also notify the Jewell County Sheriff's Office so the dispatcher knows about the burning. Burning of any kind without permission is a Class A misdemeanor punishable by a fine of up to $2500 and jail sentence of up to one year. This is true whether the fire gets out of control or not.


Effective Monday, February 13, 2017 the Jewell County Clerk’s Office will no longer sell permits and licenses for Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism.

This includes all hunting, fishing, big game, vehicle and camping permits and licenses.

You can continue to purchase vehicle park permits when renewing vehicle tags with the County Treasurer!
