30 Day Burn Ban In Effect July 28, 2016

On Thursday, July 28, 2016, Williamson County Commissioners Court approved the implementation of a County Burn Ban for a period not to exceed 30 days and to authorize County Judge Dan A. Gattis to lift the ban when conditions improve. 

A person violates this order if he burns any combustible material outside of an enclosure which serves to contain all flames and/or sparks, or orders such burning by others.  The burn ban prohibits the burning of household yard waste, such as leaves, grass, brush and other yard trimmings.  It also prohibits burning to clear land of trees, stumps, shrubbery, or other natural vegetation.  This order may be enforced by any duly-commissioned peace officer.  It is a Class C Misdemeanor that is punishable by a fine up to $500.
