Partial County Burn Ban Ordered

Land off the Caprock affected

On Monday, July 9, the Garza County Commissioners' Court issued a burn ban for terrain off the caprock while farmland west and north of the caprock is not under the order.

The partial ban is in effect for 90 days, or until October 9, 2012.  The commissioners could rescind the Order any time before it expires depending on the amount of rainfall.

The area described in the Order for Garza County Prohibition of Outdoor Burning is the "... eastern ranchland extending along a line known as the caprock.  This line begins one mile west of the caprock and includes all of the county east and south of this natural escarpment."
