Burn Permits / Burn Bans

Burn Permit Requirements

Burn permits are required in order to burn within the City limits. Cooking in appliances designated for burning (such as a grill or barbecue pit) is allowed without a permit.

Anyone wishing to burn within the City limits needs to request a burn permit by calling the Fire Department at 325-597-2311. The Fire Chief or one of the Fire Department employees will need to inspect the area and material to be burned prior to the permit issuance.

Outdoor burning occurrences, which do not have the proper permit, may result in a citation being issued.
