Burn Ban still in effect
Tyler County Booster - February 2009
Tyler County is finally getting some much needed rain, but conditions are still pretty dry and March like winds that seem to have found their way into February create dangerous conditions for the spread of wildfires. This ban will allow for certain controlled burns within the county by a certified burn manager prescribed under Section 153.048 Natural Resources Section 153.047 Natural Resources Code. Individuals or companies operating out of the scope of this order are subject to charges of a Class C Misdemeanor, a fine and community service. Requests by certified bum managers may be made through the county judge or commissioners’ offices. Signs are being placed throughout the county to inform citizens of this restriction and will be removed once the ban is lifted, Blanchette said.
