SHERMAN, Texas -- Grayson County Commmissioners voted Tuesday to pay Texas Aviation Partners $10,000 per month to operate North Texas Regional Airport.

"This is again a step in the process of moving our airport from an old retired Air Force base to a thriving successful general aviation airport," Grayson County judge Bill Magers said.

The contract begins in May and is scheduled to last five years.

Commissioners said they are still looking for an airport manager, a position that has been vacant since Mike Shahan left to manage airport in Galveston.
