While acknowledging the action might be short-lived, Brown County commissioners voted Monday to lift the burn ban they had approved a month ago.

Commissioners said the burn ban could be back if it doesn’t rain as July progresses.

Firefighters battled several large grass fires in June and part of July, but recent rains have made conditions less dangerous in rural areas.

In other business, commissioners had been scheduled to receive public comment on a proposal regarding the Zephyr Independent School District’s new sports complex, then consider executing documents related to a Texas Parks and Wildlife Department grant application.

That item was pulled from the agenda until a later date.

Also Monday, commissioners:

• Approved a temporary employee for the tax assessor-collector’s office.

• Approved a tax resale deed presented by Billy Wayne Wilkes and Carol Lynn Wilkes for lots in Thunderbird Bay.
