ECTOR COUNTY - If you live in Ector County, commissioners have decided to put a burn ban in place for the next 90 days.

The issue was discussed during their meeting on Monday morning.

Residents can still burn their trash but only if it's done in approved burn barrels with iron grates.

It's also still okay to barbecue or weld for commercial purposes.

Commissioners also talked about the types of fireworks they will allow for the Fourth of July.

They chose to ban the use of rockets with sticks and missiles with fins during the holiday.
