Commisioners Court Lifts Burn BanPress Release
SAN ANGELO, TX —The Tom Green County Commissioners Court has lifted the county wide burn ban - effective yesterday morning at 9 a.m.
The Commissioners placed the original burn ban last month after evaluating dry conditions consistent with summer months.
County Commissioner Rick Bacon said the decision to lift the ban came after the significant amount of rain fall in Tom Green County over the last few weeks. The Commissioners evaluate the weather conditions on a week-by-week basis to determine if a burn ban should be put in place.
