Burn Ban + Fireworks Ban In Effect
Hays County (that means Dripping Springs) is currently under a burn ban and the sale and use of aerial forworks is also banned. In short, you can't burn your trash and trees and you can't shoot fireworks into the air. Anyone witnessing a burn or fireworks being set off should report it immediately. A few sparkles in the sky is not worth the risk of your house or your neighbors' houses burning down. Violation of the fireworks ban is a Class C misdemeanor and is punishable by a fine of up to $500.
