Lubbock County Commissioners Extend Burn Ban in Unincorporated Parts of the County for 90 Days

The drought in the South Plains continues.  With that in mind, the commissioners heard from Clinton Thetford, the emergency management coordinator for the county.  He recommended that the current burn ban in the unincorporated parts of the county be extended for 90 days.

“Part of the data that we looked at on making this determination was we’ve already had several days that are well above our average temperature on up into the 90s.  With those hot temperatures and high winds this time of the year, and there’s still a lot of dry vegetation out there, there is a significant risk.”

Lubbock County Judge Tom Head has the option of ending the ban early if conditions change because of Spring rains.
