Commissioners originally lifted the burn ban on July 9th, but they re-instated the ban on July 30th.
"If it becomes dry again we can always come back and re-install the burn ban county wide," Precinct 3 County Commissioner Jimmie Long told Big 2. "But at this time we feel that it's safe for our citizens to be able to burn their brush piles".
Howard County residents who don't follow the rules will face fines.
