GRAYSON COUNTY, Tex. -- Grayson County leaders say residents have one last chance to voice their opinion on a proposed new jail.

A meeting will get underway at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday at the Denison Independent School District Service Center located on South Highway 91.

Judge Drue Bynum and Sheriff Keith Gary will be on hand to hear the public’s input. County officials hope the event will be better attended than many recent town hall meetings.

Tuesday, January 29
6:30 p.m.
DISD Service Center
3906 South Hwy 91 (Texoma Parkway) Denison, TX

    I apparently missed the memo where it states that jails need to be in condo condition. I mean if the jail runs properly, and meets standards, then why do you need a new one. I mean, these people are in jail, they dont need a brand new jail with luxuries.

    To begin with, Warrant is spelled with an "A" not an "E." Just so you know, Grayson County has 5 deputies that serve warrants in their off duty time, which is why we need a new jail, because it is always full, Tom Bean contributes to that by placing people in the Grayson County Jail. Also, if you would have done your research, tent city like the one on TV in Arizona can only be used for convicted inmates, not people merely charged with a crime. In this country you are still innocent until proven guilty. We have jail standards set by the State of Texas that must be adhered to. The old jail is out dated and new one is needed.

    the sherman mayor will find a way around using the park are. there will be loop holes that they will over ride. i still think that if some of these counties would set up tent cities for the jail birds like they do in arizona and show them what life can really be like then maybe they wouldn't be so many in jail for the tax payers to have to pay for. maybe sherman should start serving warrents and collect money from people like they are doing in tom bean. get their attention on way or another. i am tired of paying my hard earned money for taxes to take care of all these bums that the mayor wants to have a better place for them. people get out tonight and let them know that we don't want this here. but then if the jailbirds were set up out in the elements the aclu would be all over them. the criminals have more rights that we do and we're the ones feeding and clothing them. voice your opions tonight. i intend to. see you there

    Word on the street is, that the property that the Sherman mayor proposes to use, was donated to the city as PARK property by Anderson Clayton. PARK property can not be sold or used for other purposes without a vote of the people. Check it out for yourself ! This may be dead in the water.
