Austin County Burn Ban Will Continue [VIDEO]

Austin County Burn Ban Will Continue [VIDEO]

The burn ban will continue despite rains that parts of the county have received.  The commissioners court elected to leave the burn ban in place as upper parts of Austin County did not see the significant rains as other parts of the county did.  Commissioner Reichardt was in favor of lifting the ban for a 3 week interim and then revisit whether to put it back in place or not but, the other commissioners were not in favor of that.  The video of the discussion and vote can be seen below.
