Hockley County considers dropping a burn ban in a specially called meeting of County Commissioners on Tuesday. If so, Hockley would join Swisher, Bailey, Hale, Floyd, Lubbock, and Dickens Counties as having dropped the ban recently.
At one time all but four Texas Counties had outdoor bun bans. That number has since receded to 116.
