BURN BAN

A countywide burn ban is in effect. The ban, which prohibits most outdoor fires, applies in areas outside incorporated city limits.

Exceptions allow people to cook in barbecue pits and burn trash in a barrel with a metal screen on top. In addition, people may burn brush piles if they follow specific requirements. For details about the brush exemption, call the county judge’s office at 512-556-8271.

A violation of the burn ban is a Class C misdemeanor, punishable by a fine not to exceed $500.
