Planning of $8.5 million in capital improvement projects continues, a topic of discussion during the Wilson County Commissioners Court’s March 24 meeting.

Architect Lyndsay Thorn told the commissioners that he hopes to hear an answer back about $450,000 in state grant funds by the second week of April. The money would be used to defray costs associated with stabilizing the foundation of the 130-year-old Wilson County Courthouse.

Once the courthouse is repaired and renovated, Wilson County Judge Marvin Quinney said his office, along with those of the county attorney and the county auditor, would be located there. Other proposed changes include:

•The offices of the 81st Judicial District Attorney would be relocated to the planned criminal justice complex, which will include a district courtroom, at Wilson County Courthouse Annex III.

•Commissioners court meetings and county court will be held in the upstairs courtroom of the historic courthouse

•The county treasurer’s office would move from the basement to the main floor, with the former office being converted into the county’s historical archives

•The county’s public library would move from its current building on the courthouse square to Annex III, with the former library to be occupied by the Wilson County Clerk’s Office.

Also during the meeting, the commissioners approved a resolution asking the Texas Department of Transportation to reconsider its decision not to install a traffic light at the intersection of S.H. 123 and U.S. 87 Business in Stockdale.

In other business, the commissioners accepted a recommendation from Edwin Baker, coordinator of the Wilson County Health and Public Safety Office, to lift the county’s ban on outdoor burning.

In attendance: Wilson County Judge Marvin Quinney and commissioners Albert Gamez Jr., Paul Pfeil, and Larry Wiley; County Auditor Tom Dupnick, Sheriff Joe D. Tackitt Jr., County Clerk Eva Martinez, County Treasurer Jan Hartl, Assistant County Attorney Katherine Chapman, Lisa Eberhardt of the Wilson County Auditor’s Office, Emergency Management Coordinator LeAnn Hosek, Wilson County Health and Public Safety Office Coordinator Edwin Baker, and Library Director Nicki Stohr.

I find it fully repulsive that our county government would use a publicly supported project like the animal care facility to pass a bond election only to immediately re-allocate the funds to other projects. I thought the county ... More ›

Eight million here, eight million there, pretty soon, we're talking about real money.

Awww, guit your griping. It's only $8.5+ million. That does not require very much planning. Besides, the bond issue won in a landslide.

I know this whole $8.5 million capital improvement package is a done deal, but why wasn't more planning done before the vote? Also, no mention of the animal shelter.

County strategizes....would that be the same as making plans ? Does the county have a Chief Strategizer position. Maybe the improvements will turn into enhancements. You gotta love government. :-)
