County Prohibits Smoking in Its Parks
By Public Information Officer on 9/13/2011 2:57 PM
The Williamson County Commissioners Court today amended the burn ban that was adopted July 19, 2011, to include prohibiting smoking in Williamson County owned parks, preserves and trails due to the extreme drought conditions and high fire danger. Outdoor cooking is allowed as long as it is done in an enclosure that serves to contain all flames and/or sparks. The order also allows welding, cutting and grinding operations or hot works operations when they comply with specific fire safety guidelines. The burn ban is in effect until October 17, 2011.
