Grayson County Judge Bill Magers recently announced the county’s Veteran’s Affairs Office has moved. The office was located on the ground floor of the Grayson County Courthouse, but it is now on the annex floor, which is one flight of stairs up from the first floor. Magers said the move came as the county welcomed new GIS Manager Norma Natalianolazco.


During a meeting of the Commissioners Court, Natalianolazco said she previously worked as the 911 data coordinator for the Coastal Bend area. Commissioners approved hiring someone for the position Natalianolazco filled during their early budget sessions. Grayson County Engineer Clay Barnett, who introduced Natalianolazco in court, said she will be splitting her time between working on 911 mapping, intelligence led policing with the Grayson County Sheriff’s Office and providing maps for other county governmental offices and staff.


In a phone conversation, Natalianolazco said she has been in Grayson County for a couple of weeks and likes the area.


“I like the trees and the hills,” she said. “It has potential and it (the area) is going to grow.”


Magers said Veteran’s Affairs used to share office space with the 911 mapping office but that was not the best fit. So Veteran’s Affairs moved upstairs.


Magers also said changes to improve the ADA compliance at the courthouse will include a ramp for wheelchairs and a handicap access button for that door. He estimated the project should cost under $10,000 and take four to six weeks to complete.
