Outdoor burning in unincorporated areas of Wilson County will be allowed -- at least for now -- following a unanimous decision by the Wilson County Commissioners Court at its March 11 meeting. The matter is set to be a continual topic of discussion in upcoming meetings, in the face of a dry weather outlook.
Edwin Baker, coordinator of the Wilson County Health and Public Safety Office, serves as the county’s fire marshal. He said that during the burn ban that took effect Dec. 27, agricultural burning has been allowed on days when conditions are favorable.
Burning in residential subdivisions has been prohibited entirely. But as vegetation starts to turn from brown to green, Baker recommended that the commissioners lift the ban so that residents in these areas can burn before warmer, drier conditions make the practice less safe.
Baker reminds residents to exercise extreme caution when burning, as they can be held liable for any damage that uncontrolled fires might cause.
Also during the meeting, the commissioners:
•Met with representatives of ThornGraves Architects to discuss proposed space allocations for rooms within the Wilson County Courthouse ahead of its proposed renovation.
•Appointed Verna Gorzell as county auditor, setting her compensation at $60,000 per year. The annual compensation for the assistant county auditor and second assistant auditor were set at $24,720 and $21,000, respectively.
•Voted to allocate no more than $5,000 -- split between the county’s four precincts -- for electronics collection during a waste collection event set for Saturday, May 18, at the Wilson County Pct. 1 yard near Floresville. The San Antonio River Authority has agreed to fund collection of unwanted pharmaceuticals, tires, and household hazardous waste.
•Voted to terminate the services of attorney Russell Wilson, upon his request, related to the negotiations and contracting for the construction projects on the courthouse and courthouse annex.
•Heard a presentation about the status of the Mission Rail Park planned for Saspamco. See related article, page 1A.
