Commerce Mayor Wyman Williams says the city has a deal with Toole Design and Ian Lockwood, the person behind the revitalization of downtown Sulphur Springs.  Lockwood and his team will be in Commerce July 10-13 and August 7-10 to meet with citizens and to formulate a comprehensive plan for the city.  Texas A&M University-Commerce is participating in the effort.  On another topic, the city is looking for a finance director to replace Brady Olson, who has left for another position.  But the mayor says during his relatively short time in the job, the city raised its bond rating from BBB to A and lowered the interest rate on certain debt.
