    The Randall County Commissioners Court approved a 90-day burn ban during their meeting Tuesday.

    The burn ban prohibits any and all outdoor burning of trash, debris and brush in the unincorporated areas of the county for 90 days after the ban was passed, unless the Commissioners Court determines that the circumstances making the burn ban necessary are determined to no longer exist.

    Should circumstances improve to where a determination is made that the burn ban be lifted in a time between regular meetings of the County Commissioners Court, the County Judge has the authority to rescind the burn ban.

    A violation of the burn ban, according to Local Government Code 352.081(h), is a Class C misdemeanor and punishable by a fine of up to $500.
