A familiar face will return to the Grayson County Commissioner’s courtroom Tuesday as Johnny Waldrip is sworn in as part of the Texas Silver-Haired Legislature.
Waldrip served as commissioner for Precinct 1 from 2001 to 2012 and as chief deputy at the Grayson County Sheriff’s Office before that. Waldrip retired from the Texas Department of Public Safety as a Texas Ranger before getting involved in local law enforcement and politics.
“I have been retired for long enough and now it is time for me to serve the public again,” Waldrip said when asked why he wanted to serve on the Silver-Haired Legislature. The commissioners meet at 10 a.m. at the Grayson County Courthouse in Sherman.
In addition to adding Waldrip to the list of people who help champion the elderly, commissioners will also consider declaring Sept. 17-23 as “Constitution Week” in Grayson County.
Commissioners will also consider:
• A request to renew the Texas AgriLife Computer Memorandum of Agreement;
• A request to confirm availability of on-site sewage facilities for Property ID 130697 on FM 902;
• A request to approve a resolution for 2017 Tax Resale Auction to be held at 10 a.m. on Oct. 12 in the Grayson County Courthouse Assembly Room;
• A request to approve an interlocal agreement between Sherman, Denison and Grayson County for participation in the 2017 Justice Assistance Grant;
• A request to accept $108,830.36 from TCOG 9-1-1 Program under authority of commission on State Emergency Communications Rule 251.3. for the purchase of communications equipment for the Grayson County Sheriff’s Office;
• A request to discuss and approve the sale of surplus handguns as presented; and
• A request to discuss and approve and execute the Texas Department of Transportation agreement to contribute right of way funds for state Highway 377 at Lake Texoma.
