Due to the drought conditions and current Burn Ban in effect in Williamson County, County Judge Bill Gravell and the fireworks industry have worked together to limit the sale of two types of fireworks products this July Fourth holiday. Stick rockets and missiles with fins or rudders will not be sold. Most jurisdictions have city ordinances prohibiting the use of fireworks within or near the city limits. An interactive county map with the fireworks-free buffer zone area is available at this link https://gis.wilco.org/maps/?viewer=countymap. Fireworks sales begin on Friday, June 24.

Williamson County Issues Burn Ban

The Williamson County Commissioners Court has issued a county-wide burn ban for a period not to exceed 90 days due to severe drought conditions, above-average heat, low humidity, low fuel moistures and high winds that are creating dangerous wildfire conditions that would be exacerbated by outdoor burning. The order can be lifted by the County Judge if conditions improve. For additional restrictions, requirements and details relating to the Order Prohibiting Outdoor Burning, the Order may be viewed here.
