Burn ban revoked? Decision to come Tuesday

January 16, 2012

According to Howard County Volunteer Fire Chief Tommy Sullivan, county officials will likely lift the existing burn ban during Tuesday morning's meeting of the commissioners court, marking the first time in more than a year-and-a-half since the Crossroads hasn't been under such a ban.
Sullivan said considerable rain showers — not to mention snowfalls, which just recently melted off — have at least temporarily slaked the thirst in the county's brushlands, giving local land owners a much-needed window to perform some upkeep.
