Barr to sign fireworks ban

June 9, 2011

Aside from the annual Pops in the Park show, it will be a fireworks-free Fourth of July in Howard County.

County Judge Mark Barr announced today he will sign a declaration Monday banning the sale, possession and use of fireworks in the county.

Worsening drought conditions, coupled with the increased threat of wildfires, have prompted the move, Barr said.

Barr's declaration, which is expected to be ratified by county commissioners Monday, will take effect at that time and be forwarded to Texas Gov. Rick Perry for formal approval. Once Perry signs off on the move, the ban will remain in effect for 30 days.
