INDEPENDENCE — Despite the counsel of the Grayson County Planning Commission and many citizens, Grayson County Board of Supervisors voted 3-2 to continue the process of repealing the county’s zoning ordinance at its monthly meeting last Thursday night.
In another motion, the board directed staff to investigate the possibility of seeking special legislation in the General Assembly to allow the county to place the issue of zoning to a referendum vote.
