Somervell County Commissioners have called a special meeting Thursday morning to consider lifting the burn ban that they recently extended for 90 days before last week's heavy rain.

The meeting will begin at 9:30 a.m. in the Commissioners Courtroom in the Somervell County Courthouse Annex.

County Judge Mike Ford said the county has been receiving a lot of calls from constituents asking about the ban. Surrounding counties have lifted their burn bans, he noted.

No grass or brush fires were reported on this week's Somervell County Sheriff's Department log for the first time in many weeks.
