Burning Permit Status by Text Message

Berkshire Technologies Inc., the company behind the eGoshen website is developing new text-based messaging software, and has developed an experimental system that gives Goshen residents the ability to check on the status of burning permit issue in Goshen, via text message right from your mobile phone. 

Though believed to be accurate in all cases, you should consider this an 'unofficial status' and you will of course still need to use the official permit page to actually get a permit issued to you if they are available. However, if you just want to check and see if permits are being issued on any given day, without bothering to go online first, the quick-and-easy way is to text BURN to 413-570-0987 and you will get the current status back to you in seconds.

There is no cost to use this service other than what you already pay your phone company to send and receive text messages

If you have questions or comments on this service, or any other part of the system, please use our suggestion box, and let us know.

We hope to keep this service operational for at least for the 2013 burning season which ends in May 1st.
