Hays County Courthouse, San Marcos, TX – 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 information about safe burning, visit the County’s website at www.co.hays.tx.us and choose Fire Marshal from the Law Enforcement drop down at the top of the page.
