Wilco lifts burn ban after recent wet weather

Williamson County Judge Bill Gravell Wednesday lifted a burn ban Wednesday after having previously placed it on unincorporated areas in the county.

The county was under a burn ban because of the dry conditions and sporadic high winds since June. 

“Due to the recent rains and higher humidity levels, I am lifting the burn ban,” Mr. Gravell said in a press release issued Wednesday. “However, if the weather continues to be warm and dry, the burn ban could be implemented again as early as next week, so please burn while conditions are favorable.” 

Before participating in a control burn, the county suggests: 
• Contacting the local fire department as some fire departments may require a Burn Permit. 
• Contacting Williamson County Communications to report a control burn at 512-864-8282. Williamson County Communications should be able to inform you of any burning restrictions that may exist.
