City crews were out in force Monday clearing out dead trees from Memorial Park.

Workers say they've been busy for the past three months as Texas continues to suffer through one of the worst droughts in state history. Mayor Annise Parker last week issued a temporary ban against all open flames in city parks.

City Council will decide this week whether to make it an ordinance.
