Limestone County commissioners at Monday’s commissioners court meeting let the county burn ban stay in effect and also made final plans for the Nov. 5 Constitutional Amendment Election.

“We’re even higher on the Drought Index than we were before, and it’s pretty much consistent around the county,” said County Judge Daniel Burkeen, referring to the Keetch-Byram Drought Index, which measures moisture in the land.
No one disagreed, so no action was taken.

In preparation for the upcoming election, the final votes were taken at Monday’s meeting on preparations for the Nov. 5 Constitutional Amendment Election.

The court agreed to designate the Courthouse, Room G6, as the main early voting polling place; and also designate the Courthouse annex in Mexia as a temporary polling place for early voting.
