Grayson County commissioners will consider the amount that the county will pay for fire and ambulance protection in the coming year when they meet Tuesday.


On the agenda for the weekly meeting are the awards for the annual contracts for those services. In budget meetings earlier this summer, the county tied increases in those payments to the amount of increases in other county employee’s paychecks. That was capped at 2 percent per department but department heads and elected officials were allowed to determine how to split that up.


In addition to the fire and ambulance contracts, county leaders will discuss the following when they meet at 10 a.m. at the Grayson County Courthouse in Sherman:


• a request from city of Sherman Tourism Department to use the courthouse grounds on Dec. 1 for their annual Snowflake Festival;


• Tyler Munis support and licensing purchase as “sole source” for its financial software used by the county. Marking it as “sole source” means the county doesn’t have to put it out for competitive bid because no one else offers the product;


• a proclamation proclaiming Grayson county as a “Purple Heart County;”


• authorize the County Judge to sign the Civil Air Patrol Lease of Building Agreement at North Texas Regional Airport-Perrin Field;


• annual proposal for vehicle maintenance;


• consider approval of the final plat of the Francis Craft Road Addition; and


• modifying accrued compensation time payout from twice-annual to quarterly.
