Outdoor burning is not allowed within the city limits. Cooking in appliances designed for such is allowed, but, safety precautions are urged. The only burn permits allowed to be issued by the Texas Air Control Board must come through the Fire Chief’s office. Only tree and brush trimmings are allowed to be burned and the material and area must be inspected by the Fire Chief or his representative prior to issuance of the permit. Any outdoor burning without the proper permit may result in a citation being issued and the fire extinguished.
