Meeting today on county burn ban

GREENVILLE — The Hunt County Commissioners Court is scheduled to meet today to decide whether to renew the county’s ban on outdoor burning.

A special session of the Hunt County Commissioners Court has been scheduled for 9 a.m. in the Auxiliary Courtroom, 2700 Johnson Street in Greenville.

The county was placed under a ban on outdoor burning August 12, as County Judge John Horn signed a disaster declaration in the wake of several recent major fires.

Under the ban no outdoor burning is permitted in the unincorporated areas of the county, including the burning of household garbage. The order does not restrict the outdoor use of welding, cutting torches and other similar tools, provided a separate individual is present to observe for fires and sparks and to have some type of fire extinguisher present. The order does not prohibit outdoor cooking but it does restrict the cooking activities to an enclosed apparatus, designed for cooking purposes.
