DeWitt County Commissioners Court had considered placing a burn ban in effect but scattered showers has delayed that decision.
 
 Meeting Monday morning, the court reviewed the drought index which last week indicated a burn ban might be needed. But thanks to rain on Friday and a forecast for more, the court decided to postpone a ban on outside fires in the rural areas.
They also postponed a possible ban on aerial fireworks for the coming July 4 holidays.
 
This the time of year the county gets a preview of what appraised values will look like later this year when the budgeting process begins.
