GRAYSON COUNTY, Tex. -- Sexually-oriented businesses will have a tougher time setting up shop in Grayson County. The commissioner's court approved a resolution Monday morning to put a list of restrictions on sexually oriented businesses that may come to the area.

The county cannot outlaw the businesses in unincorporated areas but they can give a list of regulations, including not being within a certain distance of churches, schools, or potential residential areas.

"These are some parameters that allow us to not keep them out of the county, but allow them to go to places that won't be offensive to other people in our county," Grayson County Judge Drue Bynum said.

Potential businesses would have to apply with the sheriff's office before moving in.
