GRAYSON COUNTY, Tex. – Officials say they have taken a major step toward putting together an economic team for Grayson County.

They made the decision on Monday to partner with Black Knight Partners of Dallas. This will be a public-private partnership which will help finance growth in Grayson County.

Commissioners say after a meeting last week they feel the public supports their decision to move forward.

Officials say the partnership will attract more business to the area, and develop a plan for when the much anticipated growth from the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex hits the Grayson County line.

County officials say one of the reasons behind the partnership is to further development of the airport and help build a new jail.

The judge says the next step will be to meet with the group and go over a draft constitution.

They hope to have a plan in place by the beginning of August.

    Bynum has been in office for several months now and first thing that pops up is trying to do a project with the Black Knights, who are West Point grads. Sounds fishy and like it had been in the works for a while. Also, they are talking about building the prison at the airport and improving the airport by bringing in businesses. No legit company in their right mind will move next door to a prison, not to mention costs of transporting prisoners back and forth to courthouses.

    I would like to have more information on the other businesses who were interested in this joint venture. Was being a West Point grad the primary consideration? What exactly will this company bring that the others wouldn't or couldn't? Seems like the Commissioners Court and the County Judge are acting too quickly.
