Hays County Lifts Burn Ban

The Hays County Commissioners Court lifted the burn ban, effectively immediately, at its weekly meeting today. The need for a burn ban is reviewed each week by the Court, and the County Judge has the authority to issue an emergency burn ban if the situation warrants.

Assistant Fire Marshal Clint Browning urged caution when burning since low humidity and wind can easily dry out wet grass and brush and cause a hazardous situation.
