Hays County Lifts Burn Ban

Effective immediately, the burn ban in Hays County has been lifted until further notice.

Typically the burn ban is reviewed each Tuesday at the regularly scheduled Commissioners Court meeting, but the County Judge has the authority to lift the ban or impose an emergency ban if he deems it necessary. The ban was not lifted Tuesday because local and county fire officials wanted to ensure that sufficient rain had fallen throughout Hays County to decrease the risk for outdoor burning.

For more information, please contact the Hays County fire marshal at 512.393-7339 or visit their web site.
