Burn Ban Decision Can't Be Reached

A burn ban is causing debate in Nacogdoches County.  The county commission tied on a vote that would have lifted the burn ban. Commissioners Charlie Simmons and Tom Bush wanted the burn ban to continue. While commissioners Tom Strickland and Reggie Cotton voted to lift burning restrictions. They represent the southern part of Nacogdoches County where more showers have occurred. Judge Sue Kennedy was not in the meeting to break the tie so the burn ban continues in Nacogdoches County.
