County Judge declares local disaster

From the Parker County Judge’s Office

Continuing drought conditions and threat of wildfires has prompted County Judge Mark Riley to issue a disaster declaration banning use of all fireworks in the county until July 5.

The Texas Disaster Act allows County Judges to ban the use of fireworks during a disaster for up to 60 hours unless the governor extends the ban.

Texas Governor Rick Perry has extended the ban on the use of fireworks in Parker County through July 5, 2011. 120 other Texas counties have also banned the use of fireworks, according to Perry’s office.

“The Texas Division of Emergency Management has reviewed the request for an extension and recommends that it be granted,” Perry said.
