SHERMAN, TX -- A plan to open a new health clinic to treat the poor and uninsured has moved one step forward, after county commissioners approved the initial seed money for the clinic.

On Wednesday, Grayson County commissioners approved putting money to a clinic that would be operated by the county Health Department in an old medical building on Gallagher Drive.

Grayson County Health Department Director John Teel says the clinic is a cooperation with the two hospitals, will free up resources at their emergency rooms, and could be open by next June.

"Without the commissioners court vote to free up $2 million -- to really divert the current $2 million that they currently spend on indigent health care medical bills and send that money to Austin -- without that, there would be no Grayson County Primary Care Clinic," says Teel.

Also on Wednesday, commissioners appointed Pottsboro Mayor Frank Budra as temporary Justice of the Peace Precinct 2 for two years, and it was the last meeting for outgoing commissioners Jackie Crisp and Johnny Waldrip.
