Do I need a permit to burn leaves or yard debris?

What are the rules regarding dogs, cats and other pets in Buckhead?
The covenants limit "household pets" to a maximum of five per household, no more than three of which can be dogs. Pets can not be kept or bred for commercial purposes (e.g. commercial breeders or kennel services). Pets must also not be a nuisance to other residents, must be confined to the owner's lot (not allowed to roam the neighborhood) and excessive barking is not permitted. Owners are also responsible for picking up any defecation when walking pets in the neighborhood. (Bring a baggy!) There are no breed restrictions in the covenants.
How do I report a covenant violation?
Send an email to email@example.com
along with a clear photo of the violation and the time/date that the photo was taken. We must be able to identify the location of the photo (house or mailbox visible in the photo, etc.). Please note that even though we don't share information regarding who submitted the complaint, the photo will be included in the violation letter to the resident so it should be taken from a neutral location (not from your upstairs window, etc.) if you wish to remain anonymous.
I need to report a problem with uncontrolled pet/pets?
If you encounter a problem with a neighbor's pet/pets, first address this issue directly with your neighbor. If the problem is not resolved, document (photos, times, dates, as much info as possible) the incident and simultaneously contact the association manager
or Covenant Compliance Committee
and either Bryan County Animal Control (912)727-3884 or the Bryan County Sheriff's Department at (912)756-2181.
Control of pets is covered in our covenants under Article VI, Section 6 Livestock and Poultry.
"No animals, livestock or poultry of any kind (collectively "Animals") shall be maintained on a Lot or in a Dwelling, except that not more than five(5) household pets, of which no more than three (3) being dogs, may be kept or maintained on a Lot or in a Dwelling, provided that they are not kept, bred or maintained for a commercial purpose and, provided further that they shall not in the sole discretion of the BHOA Board, constitute a nuisance or cause unsanitary conditions. All animals must be confined or tethered to their Owner's Lot or Dwelling, unless walked on a leash. Dogs which bark for extended periods of time so as to cause a nuisance or disturbance to neighbors shall not be permitted. Owners are responsible for cleaning up pet's defecation while walking the pet anywhere in the Existing Buckhead. What constitutes a household pet is up to the sole discretion of the BHOA Board."
I see my neighbor cutting trees, painting their fence, putting in a satellite dish etc. but I do not see a permit on their mailbox. Or, my neighbor is parking a boat/trailer/commercial vehicle in their driveway, or is routinely parking on the street.
