May I burn trash or have a bonfire within the city limits?

No. Burning trash, brush or other rubbish is not allowed in the city.   Ground cooking fires, Theatrical Performance Fires and Ceremonial Fires require the responsible person to obtain a fire permit from the Fire Marshal's Office prior to igniting these types of fires.   Outside fires placed in chimineas, small fire pits, and outdoor fire places are allowed in one and two family dwellings only.  It is recommended all outdoor fires in one and two family dwellings maintain no less than 15' of clearance from structures and other combustible materials.  A person commits a violation if they ignite a fire on any balcony of any multi-family dwelling unit.  If you have any questions please contact the Fire Marshal's office at (830) 248-1512 or call  (830) 249-3644.  You can email the Fire Marshal at [email protected]
