ECTOR COUNTY - Ector County residents can spark up the grill this New Year's weekend but little else.

On their agenda Monday morning, County Commissioners considered amending the existing burn ban to allow residents to burn trash and barbeque.

When the vote was taken, the only thing allowed was barbecuing, just so long as folks do it with a grill and not something like a fire pit.

All other burn ban restrictions are still in place.

The amended burn ban will be in effect for the next 90 days.
