Burn ban reinstated
A rising drought index and a lack of rainfall led Hays County Commissioners to reinstate an immediate burn ban June 5 in unincorporated areas, including the extra territorial jurisdiction (ETJ). Charcoal, wood and gas grills with lids are exempt from the ban. However, burning in “burn barrels” or fire pits is not allowed. Grilling of any kind is prohibited in Hays County parks under a burn ban. Residents living within city limits should check their municipalities’ city ordinances for burn restrictions.
