Robert Bridge, emergency management coordinator, said Monday that he requested the county judge lift the ban before winter season arrives.
“I talked to a majority of the fire chiefs and they are all in agreement,” Bridge said. “We need to allow the farmers and ranchers to burn the excess brush before the winter begins.
“We are still asking individuals to contact the sheriffs office that they are going to burn.”
Those wanting to burn should call the sheriff’s office at 361-362-3221.
