Winkler Co. – It’s still illegal to burn your trash in Winkler County.
Commissioners voted to extend the current burn ban.
Both Kermit and Wink Volunteer Fire Departments recommended the motion. They claim that although there has been moisture, it can dry out very fast.
The court also banned aerial fireworks in unincorporated areas of the county.
If you are caught burning or setting off fire works in the county, you face a fine up to $500.
