Open Burning Ban

I heard the “news” that burn permits would no longer be issued by the Town Clerk’s office, a few years ago  and I know that all open burning was banned because of the dry spell and that prohibition was lifted when the rain started.  I was perusing the philipstown.com site, and I came upon the DEC notification about open burning, sent out back in 2009.  Doesn’t it look like open burning is essentially prohibited?  Does it seem that burning limbs between March 15 and May 15, and barbecues are the only private citizen open burning allowed?  In the announcements in town on open burning, is this the impression you got?  Am I missing something here?
