Commissioners to vote on burn ban, sand supplies

Limestone County commissioners will vote at Monday’s meeting on extending the emergency burn ban declared Thursday by County Judge Daniel Burkeen.

A county judge may declare an emergency burn ban, but it is only effective for seven days unless the commissioners court extends it.

They are expected to extend the ban since the Keetch-Byram Drought Index shows the county to be extremely dry overall and predicts condition will worsen in the next two weeks.

In other business, the court will recognize employees whose service has reached certain milestones.
