The Burnet County Commissioners Court voted to place the county under a burn ban on Friday, July 10. It will stay in effect until further notice. Temperatures will hover around 100 for the next few days and drop to the mid to high 90s next week. Unfortunately there is no rain in sight.
The City Hall front office is once again closed due to COVID. You may pay your water bills via the drop box to the left of the front doors.
While Summer Reading is over, Book Bingo is ongoing for both adults and children. Go by the library and pick up a Book Bingo Grid form, which is complete with rules. Here’s how it works: read a book for each square on your grid; when you have made a “bingo”, completing a row, column or diagonal, bring your form to the library for a prize. Additionally, when you make a “blackout” on your form, you’ll earn a free ice cream scoop coupon from Bertram Blends and Boutique!
