Grayson County Commissioners very quickly approved a resolution Tuesday that will allow the Texoma Patriots to use the county courthouse as the location of the group’s 10-year anniversary celebration.


The letter requesting the permission stated that the group held its first public event on Aug. 22, 2009 and that they are planning on holding their 10-year anniversary celebration on Aug. 22, 2019 on the north steps of the courthouse, weather permitting.


If the weather doesn’t cooperate, the group plans to move the party in to the courthouse’s assembly room. The event will start at 6 p.m. and end at 8 p.m. according to the letter from Texoma Patriots Coordinator Kaaren Teuber.


“Going forward, we look to another 10 years of educating our community on conservative values,” the letter stated.


In addition, commissioners also approved Jeff Whitmire’s request to allow him to accept $42,832 for the improvements of Georgetown Road from a gravel road to a chip seal surface. Commissioners are all allowed to take donations to improve a road by Texas Government Code Sec.81.032. Information included in the commissioner’s packet shows that the donation came from Texas Southern Homes, LLC.


Commissioners also approved the payment of the county’s bills as they usually do at every meeting. The next meeting will be held at 10 a.m. Tuesday at the Grayson County Courthouse.


The agenda for that meeting will be posted at https://grayson.novusagenda.com/agendapublic/
