Grayson County Commissioners hire new county engineer

Posted:

GRAYSON COUNTY, TX – Grayson County Commissioners have hired a new county engineer.

Clay Barnett will take over next month and lead the Sherman-Denison Metropolitan Planning Organization, also known as the MPO.

He’s not new to the area. He's been the City of Sherman's engineer for the past five years.

County commissioners say half of Barnett’s salary will come from federal funds through the MPO.

“The Commissioners and the Judge saw an opportunity to combine those two positions, and save some costs there, as well as fulfilling a much needed role in Grayson County,” said Barnett.

In this new role, Barnett will still get to oversee projects in Sherman and now Denison too, who is also without an engineer.
