Here is the burn ban announcement for Roman Forest...
"Roman Forest Mayor Chris Parr issued a burn ban for the City of Roman Forest following the recommendation by the Fire Marshal.

"Montgomery County Commissioner's Court has approved a Burn Ban for unincorporated areas of Montgomery County." Roman Forest is an incorporated area, so it wouldn't be covered by the county ban. That's why the Mayor issued a separate burn ban for Roman Forest. Most of eastern Montgomery County (ie: New Caney, Porter, Patton Village, etc. are unincorporated areas and are affected by the county ban.
