Shelby County Commissioners have voted unanimously to keep an outdoor burn ban in place in the county until substantial rainfall is received. County Judge Rick Campbell first put the ban in place last week.
Also approved was an interlocal agreement between Shelby County and the Deep East Texas Groundwater Conservation District for election services for an election in which voters will decide whether or not to form a district , consisting of Shelby, San Augustine, and Sabine counties.

Officials wanted more time to fine-tune the policy, defining what an "in need " employee is and what sort of limit to put on the sick time..
