Commissioners Tackle Burn Ban & Alcohol Petition

Wichita County Commissioners are meeting on Monday and will be looking at the county's burn ban.

The current ban was put in place in early December, but the county has seen snow and rain since then.

Commissioners could leave the ban in place the way it is or lift it.

They are also expected to set the election date for a vote on the sale of alcohol in Iowa Park.

The tentative date is Saturday May 11, 2013. Iowa Park residents forced the vote after a petition drive gathered enough signatures to allow the sale of alcohol including mixed beverages in the city limits.
