The pending retirement of Grayson County’s head elf Jeff Schneider will bring the bylaws for the Grayson County Holiday Lights to Grayson County Commissioner’s Court Tuesday.

Since 2000, Schneider has spearheaded the board responsible for overseeing the presentation of Grayson County Holiday Lights. The board determines the start and end date for each year’s run as well as approves the purchase of new displays and the expansion of the drive-thru. The bylaws are designed to see that the event continues in the same vein as it has in the past once Schneider retires.

Here are three more things to know about the meeting:

1. Proclaiming April as Sexual Assault Awareness and Prevention Month

Commissioners will consider approving a proclamation acknowledging the observance of Sexual Assault Awareness and Prevention Month in the County. The proclamation states that the Grayson County Crisis Center has responded to hundreds sexual assault calls since the inception of the Sexual Assault Response Team in 2016, two in five women and one in five men in Texas have been sexually assaulted at some point in their life.

2. Contract with Simplifile for Deed Records

County commissioners will consider approving a contract with Simplifile for electronic recording of deed records filed in Grayson County. The records will be prepared here in Grayson County and then scanned into a system that will send a copy of the document to be stored by Simplifile.
