For at least the next 90 days, Wilson County is under a burn ban. This comes after a unanimous vote by the commissioners court at its Dec. 13 meeting.

Those living in unincorporated areas where trash pickup services are unavailable are permitted to burn household trash in screened burn barrels. This type of burning is only permitted during daylight hours.

Certain types of agricultural burning are still allowed, pending prior approval from the Wilson County Health and Public Safety Office. The office can be contacted at 830-393-8503.

For more, read the Dec. 15 print edition of the Wilson County News.

The 90 days is about over - Does that mean the burn ban will no longer be in effect automatically after 90 days or do they need to vote again to make it OK to burn??

For once I agree with Rock'n chair (on a few points). Why 90 days? - Should be a week to week call. I can see why the burn ban is required after no rain for awhile but today it is safer than ever after all the rain so why ... More ›

For the next 90 days? Are they using a crystal ball to see into the future? What happens if we get some good rain, like, eh, last night?? And, if it's ok to burn trash in a burn barrel for some folks, why not all folks? ... More ›

Unless otherwise permitted by the Wilson County Health and Public Safety office, the only burning allowed to take place in a burn ban is household trash -- not yard waste -- in a screened burned barrel. This type of ... More ›

Stupid Question - Does the burn ban include small residential fires like small piles of leaves?? I ask since I have seen it happening all over recently.
