Voters are set to decide Nov. 5 whether Wilson County will borrow $8.5 million for projects including renovation to the Wilson County Courthouse. That project is the subject of a special commissioners court meeting set for Thursday, Oct. 3, at 9 a.m.

The meeting, which will take place in the Commissioners Courtroom in the Wilson County Courthouse Annex III, Ste. 2, on Fourth Street in Floresville, will include a presentation by representatives of Thorn-Graves Architects. The commissioners also will “review, discuss, and approve possible application” to the Texas Historical Commission for grant funds.
