FLORESVILLE -- A master plan of the Wilson County Courthouse, to be used for applying for a grant application to the Texas Historical Commission, could cost the taxpayers up to $20,000.

Lyndsay Thorn, lead architect for ThornGraves, presented information about the grant application Oct. 3 to the Wilson County Commissioners during a special meeting.

Thorn discussed several options the county could take regarding the grant. If the commissioners vote to apply for the funds, renovations could not start on the courthouse until April 2014.

Wilson County Judge Marvin Quinney said this is an important time for the county to address some very big needs.

He added that he and the commissioners needed to take time to review the proposed costs from the architecture firm and requirements for applying for the grant.

The commissioners tabled the item, pending a meeting between Thorn and representatives from the Texas Historical Commission to discuss the requirements and qualifications for the grant.

The next regular commissioners meeting will be Monday, Oct. 14.


Wilson County Commissioners Court Oct. 3 special meeting

In attendance: Wilson County Judge Marvin Quinney; commissioners Albert Gamez Jr., Paul Pfeil, Larry Wiley, and Ricky Morales; County Auditor Verna Gorzell; Sheriff Joe D. Tackitt Jr.; County Attorney Daynah Fallwell; Wilson County Health and Public Safety Office Coordinator Edwin Baker; and County Clerk Eva Martinez.

Easier said than done Glen. It's convenient for them to hold meetings at 9am on Monday morning, and drop the notice on a Friday afternoon, and not give working folks enough time to schedule the time off to attend. Nor is it ... More ›

Forget about what is happening in D.C. We need to stop this! This is Tax Payer's money they are spending.
