The Wilson County Commissioners Court is getting a better picture of the expenditures associated with a massive capital improvement campaign, thanks to a presentation during its Jan. 28 meeting by Architect Lyndsay Thorn of San Antonio-based Thorn Graves.

Thorn said that based on preliminary estimates, it will cost:

•$1.59 million to convert the western wing of Wilson County Courthouse Annex III -- the former Floresville Primary Campus -- into a criminal justice complex.

•$1.5 million to convert the northern wing of the annex into the county’s new public library.

•$1.5 million to perform exterior renovations and foundation repairs to the Wilson County Courthouse.

•$500,000 to perform interior renovations to the Wilson County Courthouse.

In addition to those expenditures, the commissioners also approved $32,800 for mechanical, electrical, and plumbing engineering fees and $4,500 for civil engineering fees related to fire-suppression flow testing for Phase 1 of the criminal justice complex. No action was taken on an item related to approving a fee for structural X-rays of the building’s existing flooring system, because Thorn said further information was needed. The commissioners did, however, grant Thorn the authority to proceed with construction documents that will be used in creating the bid packet for Phase 1.

In other business, Library Director Nicki Stohr of the Sam Fore Jr. Wilson County Public Library presented a quarterly report on the current county library. More about this report in a future issue of the Wilson County News.

Also during the meeting, the commissioners took the following action related to the Wilson County Emergency Services District No. 2:

•Appointed board member Royal Munro to a full, two-year term. He had been appointed last year to fill an unexpired term, after Sarah Gella’s resignation.

•Accepted the resignation of board member Greg Burkett, voting to replace him with Roger Brickley, who -- along with new board member Larry Phillips -- was sworn in by Wilson County Judge Marvin Quinney.

Following the meeting, the commissioners held a long-range planning meeting with the county’s financial advisor, Bob Henderson. More about this meeting in a future issue of this newspaper.



In attendance: Wilson County Judge Marvin Quinney and commissioners Albert Gamez Jr., Paul Pfeil, Ricky Morales, and Larry Wiley; Sheriff Joe D. Tackitt Jr., County Clerk Eva Martinez, interim County Auditor Verna Gorzell, County Attorney Daynah Fallwell, Coordinator Edwin Baker of the Wilson County Emergency Management Office, Coordinator LeAnn Hosek of the Wilson County Emergency Management Agency, and Library Director Nicki Stohr of the Sam Fore Jr. Wilson County Public Library.
