SAN ANGELO – Tom Green County Commissioners Tuesday morning rescinded the ban on outdoor burning following the heavy rain Monday night.
According to information from the County Judge's office, the burn ban in Tom Green County was lifted at 8:40 a.m. Tuesday morning. Residents are now allowed to carefully burn household trash and debris in a safe manner.
The Commissioner's Court vote was unanimous.
Residents who live outside the San Angelo city limits can legally burn trash and debris. Some residents who live in the county do not have trash service and burning is one of the ways they get rid of trash and debris like tree branches and other landscaping trimmings.
