Grayson County Commissioners will meet twice next week. At their first meeting at 9:30 a.m. Monday, the Court will canvass the Nov. 5 election results.


Then on Tuesday, the Court will meet again at 10 a.m. at the Grayson County Courthouse to discuss, among other things, the need to fill the federal bench in Sherman. Sherman has not had a permanent federal judge since Judge Paul Brown took senior status in 2001. Judge Brown continued to hear cases until he retired in 2006. He died in 2012. A proclamation before Grayson County leaders Tuesday calls on the U.S. Senate to send to the White House a list of judicial nominees that can be considered to fill the vacancy.


The resolution says that judicial matters in Sherman are currently handled by judges driving from the Eastern District of Texas’ offices in Beaumont or other locations.


In addition to considering the proclamation, the commissioners will consider the following:


• appointing members to the Joint Airport Zoning Commission;


• accepting insurance settlement for storm damage at North Texas Regional Airport — Perrin Field;


• accepting a bid for struck off property;


• authorizing the purchase of 201 W. Lake St. in Sherman.
