Stay healthy, Grayson County
In light of recent concerns about the coronavirus (COVID-19), all residents should know about the precautions we are taking to ensure that our employees and Grayson County property owners stay healthy. As a result of these efforts and to comply with federal, state, and local orders, and to prevent the spread of COVID-19, the Grayson Central Appraisal District will be closing the lobby to the public effective Wednesday, March 18th until it is deemed safe to return to normal. We appreciate your patience.
