On Tuesday, June 21, Fort Bend County Commissioners Court called a special meeting to address the ongoing drought issue in our region.
As stated in the release, “With the passing of the burn ban, I would ask that our Fort Bend County residents also exercise extreme caution with the use of fireworks as they celebrate over the 4th of July weekend,” stated Judge KP George. “Because of the extremely dry conditions, we don’t want to risk the safety of our resident and their property. Additionally, we don’t want to over-extend our fire and emergency medical service personnel due to a high number of preventable emergency calls”.
