Buildings named for County Magistrates

By Theresa Armstrong -

Two county magistrates will be memorialized forever in Grayson County with buildings named after them.

During a special called Fiscal Court meeting on Friday, April 29, Grayson County Judge-Executive Gary Logsdon suggested naming the Ready Community Center after Sixth-District Magistrate Curtis Wells and the Rock Creek Voting & Community Center after Fifth-District Magistrate Brad Brown.

Both buildings have recently been updated, and Logsdon felt this was a nice gesture because both men have done so much to help the community.

“We plan to name the Park and Ride in Clarkson for Harold Johnson when that is completed,” said Logsdon.

In other business the Fiscal Court:

• approved the final window bid that will replace all the windows on the third floor of the courthouse on the square at a price of $88,720.

• approved the second reading and adoption of a proposed ordinance amending the Grayson County budget for Fiscal Year ending 2015-16.

• approved the LGEQ& CRA proposed use hearing for FY ending 2016-2017.

• approved the first reading of proposed county budget ordinance for the FY 2016-2017.

• approved the Treasure’s Budget Amendment.

• approved late bills.

• discussed problems with the Judicial Roadway. The new library property will take away a corner of the proposed bridge linking the East White Oak and Carrol Gibson Blvd, and the Fiscal Court decided to address the issue now. County Attorney Clay Ratley said he had been in touch with the library attorney and they were working to resolve the issue.
