Statement from County Judge Pape regarding Independent Panel to Examine Rolling Pines Wildfire

"I’m pleased that TPWD has so quickly announced a plan for an independent study of the Rolling Pines fire.  It is also gratifying to hear that they have placed a moratorium on prescribed burning in Bastrop County until the investigation is complete, findings are released, and their prescribed burn criteria are changed.  I will continue to inform our citizens of developments regarding the investigation and outcomes."  Judge Pape
