Woodward County Commissioners on Monday allowed the burn ban to expire pending on the amount of rainfall that is in the forecast for the area on Monday and Tuesday.

“If the storms bypass us and we don’t get as expected, we may have to have an emergency meeting on Wednesday to reevaluate the ban,” said Commissioner Troy White after much discussion.

The burn ban has been in effect since mid-December.

Kristy Hill was present for the commissioners to sign the ESG grant for Northwest Domestic Crisis Woodward and Guymon locations.

“It’s a pleasure to work with the county to support the ESG grant and it’s one of the many grants we have to have signed in having the support of the county,” she said.

Sheriff Kevin Mitchell requested the interlocal agreement with dispatch be tabled another week. The Commissioners agreed to the request.
