Commissioners Say Let the Fireworks Begin
"Have a safe and wonderful fourth.”
That was the reaction from county commissioner Mark Heinrich after commissioners voted against a new fireworks ban. The decision came after commissioners heard from Clinton Thetford, the county’s emergency management coordinator.
“If you look at the long-term drought indices, we’re still considered to be in an extreme drought," Thetford said. " I think most of Texas is in that same category. Short-term, we’ve really caught up on a lot of our rainfall and are looking a lot better, and hope and pray we continue to receive some rainfall."
