Burn Ban Issued for Williamson County

On Tuesday, April 17, 2018, Williamson County Commissioners Court approved the implementation of a County Burn Ban for a period not to exceed 90 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.

County Increases Security at Cambria Drive Cave

Last weekend, it was reported that some person or persons had been trespassing and illegally entered the cave on Cambria Drive. Williamson County employees verified the trespassing and immediately took necessary measures to secure the site. Entering the cave is both illegal and dangerous. Anyone caught illegally entering the cave will be prosecuted for trespassing. Additionally, our concern is that trespassers also may place others at risk if first responders are required for any rescue efforts.

Help Stop the Flu

Influenza activity remains high across the state of Texas. The Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS) urges everyone six months old and older to get vaccinated against the flu. It is particularly important for pregnant women, young children, older adults, and people with chronic health conditions, because people in those groups are at a greater risk of severe complications if they do get the flu. The flu vaccine is available now. Find the closest location here. Other important steps include wash your hands frequently with soap and water or use hand sanitizer; cover your coughs and sneezes; stay home if you’re sick; and have a plan to care for sick family members at home.
