Llano County cancels burn ban

The Llano County Commissioners Court rescinded a county-wide burn ban Monday, Aug. 14, just two weeks after imposing it.

When Llano got more than seven inches of rain Aug. 6-7, County Judge Mary Cunningham said she began receiving calls asking if the ban would be lifted.

Commissioners agreed, but will likely take a look at the ban again Monday, Aug. 21, at the special hearing on the proposed county budget. That meeting is set at 9 a.m. at the Llano County Law Enforcement Center, 2001 Texas 16 North in Llano. An agreement to review the ban was a compromise with Precinct3 Commissioner Mike Sandoval, who had suggested a one-week interruption of the ban only.
