County lifts burn ban – for now


Hays County officials have temporarily lifted a ban on outdoor burning because of recent rains, which continued well into Friday afternoon.

However, the county is expected to reinstate the burn ban as early as next Monday, April 20, because rain is likely to end during the weekend and drought conditions will continue in the county.

The county has been under a more or less continuous burn ban for the last six months. After lifting the ban on March 13, the county reinstated it on March 18 for 90 days, lifting it only for the moment because of the solid rains in the area.
