Ongoing triple-digit daytime temperatures and the recent absence of measurable rainfall in our area have prompted the Wilson County Commissioners Court to institute a countywide burn ban for the next 90 days. The commissioners’ unanimous decision came during their Aug. 13 meeting.

Under the ban, open burning will be allowed as conditions permit, but not without prior approval from the Wilson County Health and Public Safety Office. The office can be called weekdays at 830-393-8503.

Burning of household trash in unincorporated areas is allowed only in a screened burn barrel and during daylight hours. Wilson County Health and Public Safety Office Coordinator Edwin Baker said violation of a declared burn ban is considered a Class C misdemeanor, punishable by a fine of up to $500.
