[ARCHIVED] County approves ban on outdoor burning

County approves ban on outdoor burning

With high winds and an equally high load of combustible plant life, along with the longest persistent drought in recent history, the Ellis County Commissioners’ Court voted unanimously to enact a ban on outdoor burning, effective for 90 days.
“Pursuant to Section 352.081(c)(2) of the Texas Local Government Code, I move the Court to make a finding that circumstances present in all or part of the unincorporated area of Ellis County create a public safety hazard that would be exacerbated by outdoor burning and therefore approve an outdoor burn ban,” said Commissioner Bill Dodson, pct. 2.
Ennis Fire Chief David Hopkins was on hand to support the ban.
