Commissioners Approve Burn Ban in Jeff Davis County


A burn ban is now in effect in Jeff Davis County. 

Judge Jeannette Duer confirmed the ban Monday afternoon following a vote in commissioners court earlier this morning. 

Duer said hot and dry conditions have been a concern for county officials prompting the ban Monday. 

“With the Fourth of July coming up, we are trying to take every precaution we can,” Duer said of the ban.
