Williamson County Judge Dan A. Gattis, Sr., has issued a Declaration of Disaster for Williamson County on September 5, 2011, as the county is under imminent threat of widespread or severe damage, injury, or loss of life or property resulting from extraordinary drought conditions, critical weather and wildfire conditions, and the imminent threat of wildfire. This declaration includes no outdoor fires of any kind including barbecues and smoking. A copy of the declaration can be found here.
