Grayson County Commissioners will continue to talk about their newly approved budget when they return from the long holiday weekend. The court meets Tuesday at 10 a.m. at the Grayson County Courthouse and the meeting is open to the public.
Commissioners will discuss and take action on revisions they discussed for the county’s holiday pay policy during their budget sessions. Grayson County Judge Bill Magers said right now people who must work a holiday are paid their straight pay for that day and then given comp time. The new plan, if approved, will pay each person who must work a holiday at the county’s facilities that run 24-hours a day, seven days a week, double pay for the hours they work. Comp time will be eliminated. That change is expected to help scheduling at the jail and other places because they won’t constantly be trying to schedule around people’s comp time. The move, Magers said, is going to be budget neutral The county begins its new budget on Oct. 1.
In addition, the commissioners will consider a request from St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church to change the date of the Pet Blessing Fair from Sept. 30 to Oct. 7. And, they will consider a request from Carriage Estates Homeowners Association to use the west courtroom on Sept. 14.
Commissioners will also consider and take action on the renewal of the interlocal agreement with Lubbock County for the regional public defender for capital cases.
A request will also be considered to allow Magers to sign a grant resolution to apply for a Rifle Resistant Body Armor Grant through the Office of the Governor.
Additionally, county leaders will discuss and possibly take action on a bid proposal from the city of Sherman for property located in the West Park Addition, Block 1, Lot 6 that was struck off to taxing entities for delinquent taxes.
Lastly, the commissioners will discuss and possibly take action to appoint Commissioner Bart Lawrence to the city of Denison Tax Increment Reinvestment Zone No. 2 Board.
