No one is allowed to enter the Bosque, the Rio Grande Valley State Park or any other Open Space area, Mayor Richard Berry announced today. The city is in extreme fire danger, and rain isn’t due any time soon. Police and fire patrols will scour the city’s wild areas, and anyone who’s caught violating the restriction will face a $500 fine and/or 90 days in jail.
If you see anyone using illegal fireworks, call 833-7390. From 7 p.m. until 1 a.m. on Saturday, July 2; Sunday, July 3; and Monday, July 4; that number is 833-7335.
