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.
