The Hays County Commissioners Court on Tuesday reinstated a countywide burn ban, effective immediately. The Court also banned the sale and use of fireworks with sticks and fins due to the fire hazard they present.
Burn ban and fireworks violators could face a class C misdemeanor charge with a fine up to $500. The fireworks ban does not extend to fireworks sponsored by governmental entities or to entities holding a permit from the Hays County fire marshal to conduct organized, commercial fireworks displays in unincorporated areas of Hays County.
