Submitted By: Tyner Little, Commissioners Court Admin
Department: Commissioners Court Admin  

Information
RECOMMENDATION
Discuss and consider adopting an Order Banning Aerial Fireworks in the unincorporated areas of Nueces County for the December Fireworks Season, pursuant to Chapter 352 of the Texas Local Government Code.
BACKGROUND
In order to prohibit possession of aerial fireworks, Section 352.051 of the Texas Local Government Code provides that drought conditions exist when the Keetch-Byram Index has a value of 575 or greater.  So, the Commissioners Court only has authority to prohibit these restricted fireworks when the index is at 575 units or greater.
DISCUSSION
Drought conditions continue to exist. Commissioners Court must make a decision pursuant to law before December 15 for the December Fireworks Season.
