However, Commissioners voted unanimously to keep the ban in place, aaying it would be irresponsible to allow burning when water is in such short supply.
"The water situation is dire, and every gallon we use, is a gallon that didn't have to be used to put out a fire," said Bourgoin, "and I think it's prudent of the court to keep the burn ban in place."
Even though there is a burn ban in place, the County does allow welding and agricultural control burns in certain circumstances.
