Back in 2007, Hays County voters approved $30 million in parks bonds by an almost two to one vote.

On Tuesday, the commissioners court heard that the money has been well spent.

“We have completed the mission the citizens authorized us to fulfill,” Pct. 3 Commissioner Will Conley said, noting that the funding, matched nearly 1.6 to 1 by municipalities, non-profits and other associations, benefited programs from one end of the county to another.

“The fire chiefs have been asking for (the ban) since last week,” Browning said. “I’ve had many citizen requests.”
