COMAL COUNTY BURN BAN
in effect Friday July 10
Because of increasingly dry conditions, the Comal County Commissioners Court on Thursday July 9 implemented a ban on outdoor burning effective July 10, 2020
Under the restrictions, no open flames are allowed outdoors – including trash burning, campfires and torches, among others. Residents may use a barbecue pit with an open flame for cooking purposes only if the grill has a lid and is set off the ground. Welders are encouraged to use a spotter for any outdoor welding and to keep a water source nearby.
As of Monday, the Keetch-Byram Drought Index was 599, well above the 500-point threshold at which a burn ban is typically implemented.

DAMAGE TO NATURE PRESERE TRAILS
Since the 7"+ of rain on May 12, there was substantial damage to the Main trail in the Nature Preserve, especially at the south end. The trail damage has been repaired thanks to resident Jason Merz and Nature Presrve Committee Chair, Maria Brady! Thank you!
The Architectural Control Committee (ACC) is unable to process expedited reviews during the current pandemic. They will process applications as quickly as possible but cannot promise expedited deadlines.
Due to COVID-19 restrictions, the Mountain Springs Ranch ACC needs to inform our neighbors of the current complications of processing applications. The restrictions have extended our approval/denial process timelines. We are dedicated to the process and ask for your undertanding while we make necessary adjustments to operate under current restrictions.
Due to COVID-19 Virus complications, the Committee is unable at this time to process necessary deposits and refunds. DAMC is unable to access the needed information. We are sorry for the inconvenience and hope to see the situation improve soon.
Please remember, all exterior changes or additions must be applied for to the ACC and receive written approval before installation.
Thank you for your patience and stay safe.

PREVENT OAK WILT
SAVE OUR BEAUTIFUL TREES
1. Avoid pruning Oak trees between early February and late June.
2. If it is necessary to prune susceptible trees, or if trees are wounded, use a wound paint (pruning sealer) immediately. A new infection can be started quickly on a fresh wound (less than 15 minutes). Wounds are naturally sealed off by the tree after about a week. So painting old wounds is of no value. All fresh wounds, regardless of size or if the removed branch was alive or dead, should be painted. Click on this link for additional information: https://stopoakwilt.com/oak-wilt.html
