Burn Ban in Effect for Williamson County

Williamson County Commissioner’s Court issued a burn ban Tuesday July 11 to be in effect for 90 days unless the ban is removed by a county judge. In Texas, local governments are empowered to take action on the behalf of those they serve.

When drought conditions exist, a burn ban can be put in place by a county judge or county commissioners court prohibiting or restricting outdoor burning for public safety.
