Wilson County residents who wish to ring in the New Year with fireworks can do so, as there is no ban on the use of aerial fireworks in unincorporated areas of the county. This is because, according to Coordinator Edwin Baker of the Wilson County Health and Public Safety Office, the Keetch-Byram Drought Index had not reached the threshold of 575 before the Wilson County Commissioners Court’s Dec. 10 meeting.

This also means that there is no active burn ban in Wilson County. However, the county still reserves the right to ban outdoor burning if weather conditions are unfavorable for that activity. Burning was banned Dec. 20, when red flag warnings were issued throughout South Central Texas.

Residents are reminded that despite whether a ban on fireworks or outdoor burning has been declared, they still are civilly liable for any property damage these activities might cause.

Refer to the information below about fireworks bans and burn bans in the Wilson County News’ readership area.

Bans in area counties
•Karnes and Gonzales counties have a ban on aerial fireworks.
•Guadalupe County has a burn ban.
•There are no bans on burning or aerial fireworks in Atascosa, Bexar and Wilson counties.

A big thank you to all the volunteer fire fighters in the region that will be fighting fires over the next several days instead of getting to spend time with your families. Might as well encourage people to throw lit cigarettes ... More ›

There is also an ordiance about burning leaves and trash in Floresville. But there have been some doing it. I think maybe the paper should do a story on that to remind people.
