There are several firewood dealers in the area who deliver cut/split cords. I use Chris Dunn, but I'm not sure if he's taking on new clients. You can give him a call at 424-8269 or 424-9043. (Those are the numbers on the net, not sure if they're accurate. I have his cell number at home.)

I think it's too late in the season to buy green, but that's up to you. Buying dry cords is more expensive. Once you figure out how many cords you'll go through in a season you can pre-buy green and store it for a year rather than buy dry cords. It's even cheaper if you buy grapple load (about 8 cords in logs rather than cut/split) but that's a lot of work.

You're smart to be cautious about your chimney. I don't know which liner you're using, but be sure to check the manufacturers requirements for insulation. I know the one we had installed said to wrap it in fiberglass insulation before putting it in.

Good luck!
