WOODVILLE – Before tackling a brief agenda at Monday morning’s meeting of the Tyler County Commissioners Court, County Judge Milton Powers looked over at County Clerk Donece Gregory and said “Madam Clerk, it’s good to see you back,” which drew a round of applause.

Gregory, who had been out, recovering from illness, was recognized by the court by way of a proclamation. The proclamation recognized Gregory’s recent achievement of being named “County Clerk of the Year” by the County and District Clerks’ Association of Texas.

“We want to thank her for all of her years of service and dedication to our county,” Judge Powers said, before noting her achievement. “We are so proud of her,” he said, before the officials stood and applauded her.

“I was truly shocked,” Gregory said of receiving the award in June at a conference in McAllen. She said she was certain a friend of hers would receive it, and she was sitting in the audience, cellphone at the ready to document her friend’s achievement, when her own name was called.

County to purchase Nutrition Center building

The county voted to enter into a contract to purchase the building located at 201 Veterans Way in Woodville from the Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 2033.

The building houses the county’s Senior Nutrition Center, as well as other county offices, including the Texas AgriLife Extension Office and the Office of Emergency Management. Pct. 1 Commissioner Joe Blacksher motioned to approve the contract, which allows the county to purchase the building for $555,000.

Powers said the county has talked to counsel, who feel the county should move forward on the purchase. The county has leased the building from the VFW on a 50-year lease, which is nearing the end, said Pct. 3 Commissioner Mike Marshall.

Blacksher said it was brought to his attention that some of the housing of offices in the building violate the conditions of the lease.
