Llano County reinstates burn ban for unincorporated areas


LLANO — The Llano County Commissioners enacted a burn ban July 14 for the unincorporated portions of the county.

The commissioners lifted the ban in May. A lack of rainfall, coupled with high temperatures and low humidity, brought about a new ban.

This means no open fires.

People who violate the Llano County burn ban could face a Class C misdemeanor, which is punishable by up to a $500 fine.

Residents of incorporated cities such as Horseshoe Bay or Llano should check with their respective city halls or fire departments regarding outdoor burning.

Weather forecasts call for continued hot temperatures July 14 with chances of rain building through the week to the greatest chances July 17 and 18. However, triple-digit temperatures should return by the weekend.
