Commissioners Court also accepted a $1,408 insurance payment for guard rail damage on Lotice Road in Precinct 1. The Court also approved Mona Robnett request to apply for a state Violence Against Women Act grant for fiscal year 2015. Robnett, with the Grayson County District Attorney’s Office, said the grant has, in the past, been used to pay partial salary for an Investigator Terry Dunn’s work on domestic violence cases.


David Whitlock, commissioner for Precinct 2, asked the rest of the Court to approve reservations at Loy Park for Oct. 3 and 4 for a 5K Dash from the Past and Frontier Day event for Frontier Village and April 26 for a Civil War reenactment.


When Whitlock teased commissioner Jeff Whitmire that he should sign up for the dash to get his exercise in, Whitmire quipped, "I don’t run unless someone’s chasing me." Grayson County Judge Drue Bynum said the chasing could probably arranged at the Civil War reenactment on April 26.
