Howard County Commissioners opted to table a proposed burn ban Monday morning following a weekend of intermittent rainfall throughout the Crossroads area, moisture local firefighting officials say should buy residents a few weeks of relative safety from wildfires.
Precinct 3 Commissioner Jimmie Long â€” serving in place of County Judge Mark Barr, who was unable to attend Monday's meeting â€” said the county had received a recommendation from Volunteer Fire Department Chief Tommy Sullivan to table the proposed county-wide ban for a minimum of two weeks.
