Grayson County Health Department Report on West Nile Virus
Posted on September 26th, 2014 at 4:10:36 PM by Mayor Sherry E. Howard
Please note the attached West Nile Virus (WNV) situation report for September 26, 2014. The Grayson County Health Department’s Environmental Health Division has received laboratory results for mosquito traps set on September 10, 2014. The Texas A & M Veterinary Medical Diagnostic Laboratory Report indicated two of fourteen mosquito pools submitted for analysis (a pool is one net of mosquitoes collected from a single address) were positive for WNV. This brings the total up to four positive WNV pools identified within Grayson County for 2014. A total of 327 traps have been set throughout the county since May 1, 2014. The third positive WNV pool identified on the report was from a trap set within the city limits of Whitewright and the fourth was from a trap set within the city limits of Howe. Previously, two other positive WNV pools had been identified from within the city limits of Denison, Texas. The Environmental Health (EH)/WNV team members are currently working with both Whitewright and Howe officials. They have notified city officials of the positive WNV results and actions to take in response to the report. The EH/WNV team will now increase surveillance efforts in these areas, in addition to the area in Denison.

Although additional WNV positive pools have now been identified in other cities within Grayson County, specifically within the city limits of Whitewright, and Howe, Texas; the overall trap counts continue to remain low. The Grayson County Health Department’s EH/WNV team will continue their surveillance efforts throughout the county over the next few months. We continue to encourage individuals to remain vigilant and take the necessary precautions to protect themselves and others against the West Nile Virus.

Tom Bean Park Activity Update
Posted on September 10th, 2014 at 3:45:10 PM by Mayor Sherry E. Howard
I will summarize the park activity as best that I can for now. As you know, it is a slow process but we will get there eventually. The Type B Economic Development Corporation agreed to pay the $2500 fee that was presented to us from an outside firm to do a Tom Bean Park Master plan which includes analyzing the capabilities and limitations of the park site and prepare descriptive graphics in a study of development feasibility. This is due back to us by the end of September. We are also having a topographical survey done of which the Type A Community Development Corporation agreed to pay for $700 fee. This was needed by our consultant firm for the Master Plan. This info is due back to us and the consultant by September 9th. The consultant firm will prepare a final draft of the master plan for the park and an opinion of probable construction costs and recommendations for construction phasing for the park site. Increments of development will correspond to park budget plans. Upon approval of the final draft and authorization to proceed, they will make final revisions to the park Master Plan and present to the City Council for approval. At this time, grants will need to be investigated/pursued for funding the phases of the park. Plat preparation will occur once we have all our plans and line locations/etc. identified. This total effort will take several years.
