INDEPENDENCE — Grayson County is reloading its search for a shooting range location after a previously identified site was deemed to be unsuitable.
County Administrator Jonathan Sweet updated the board of supervisors on the proposed location at the closed Grayson County landfill across Cornerstone Road, during the board’s regular meeting earlier this month.
Sweet also said the county has found additional funding above the $25,000 grant the National Rifle Association has provided the county for building the range.
