Burn ban lifted again until Sunday

For the second straight week, Milam County Judge Dave Barkemeyer has lifted Milam’s outdoor burning ban.

At presstime Tuesday morning, just under one inch of rain had fallen in Rockdale.

Barkemeyer also lifted the ban temporarily last week. It was reimposed on Sunday but lifted again the next day.

“There are three stipultions regarding burning,” he said. “Don’t burn if winds are more than 15- 20 miles per hour. Don’t burn after dark. If you are burning brush piles, or major burns, let your local fire department know.”
