COMAL COUNTY BURN BAN LIFTED

Please be aware that most properties in Mountain Springs Ranch are too close to existing homes to burn land clearing trees and brush in Mountain Spirings Ranch.  Check the TCEQ Burn regulations and the MSR ADGs before considering burning on your property.  Please consider chipping or hauling away as alternatives to burning.
