The Burn Ban is lifted until Saturday, May 13 at 7pm . That is the day that the current Burn Ban Order expires. So, unless a new Burn Ban order is put in place prior to that time, you can still do outside burning after May 13th until a new order is put in place. That may be changed at any time by County Commissioners, however it has not been placed on the Commissioners Court agenda for their Monday meeting.
