SHERMAN, TX -- Grayson County commissioners approved lifting a burn ban, after the county judge broke a tie vote over whether a ban was appropriate after the White Christmas snow.

At their last meeting on Wednesday, two commissioners voted to keep that burn ban, before being overruled.

County Judge Drue Bynum said that the idea of keeping a burn ban just did not hold up after the snowfall, and the burn ban was immediately canceled.

County Emergency Management Director Sarah Somers had argued before the court that a continued drought made the burn ban necessary.

After years of service, both Jackie Crisp and Johnny Waldrip wrapped up their terms on the Commissioners Court. Crisp lost a bid for re-election, and Waldrip lost a race for sheriff.  Phyllis James and Jeff Whitmire will replace them next month.
