RENO, TX-- The Reno City Council issued a city wide burn ban at Tuesday nights council meeting.
The 90 day burn ban goes into effect immediately and prohibits outdoor burning.
The city says with the dry weather and drought conditions it becomes a health and public safety situation regarding burning in open spaces. The ban can be lifted if the city sees a significant amount of rainfall.
Lamar County was put under a burn ban on August 30th.
