Commissioners suggest county pray to end drought

Commissioners suggest county pray to end drought

Posted: Updated:

The county commissioners are asking everyone to pray and fast for rain.

Precinct 3 Commissioner Gilbert Flores says the drought's impacting how the county keeps up with its roads, especially the smaller dirt and caliche ones. 

"They're just dry, they're hard to work on," he said. "Our R&V is having a hard time pleasing our customers out in the rural areas, but they have to understand that it's very hard to go out there and drag roads when they're so dry."

County Judge Tom Head suggests it's worked before.

Commissioners made a similar proclamation in January 2014 and the next two years were very wet.
