Seguin-based Sullivan Contracting Services has been selected as the contractor for what will become Wilson County’s new justice center complex. The Wilson County Commissioners Court, at its June 23 meeting, accepted the firm’s base bid of $4,169,458 for renovating a section of the Wilson County Courthouse Annex III.
The complex will include a new district courtroom, offices for the 81st Judicial District Attorney’s personnel, sally port, and holding cells for inmates being brought to court.
Funds for the projects are made possible by an $8.5 million certificates of obligation package approved by voters in the November 2013 election. The money also is paying for a new county library to also be built at Annex III, as well as renovation and stabilization of the historic Wilson County Courthouse.
The commissioners also approved two contracts with San Antonio-based Alpha Testing, which will conduct studies of soil and construction materials such as concrete, structural steel, bricks and mortar, and asphalt. For performing these tasks at the courthouse, Alpha estimates it will cost $1,539, while it will cost $8,726 for tests at the justice center.
In other business, the commissioners:
•Accepted the resignation of Lynn Ray West from the Wilson County Emergency Services District No. 3 board of commissioners and appointed Roger Click as his successor.
•Voted to accept the gift of a one-year subscription to Movie Licensing USA for the Sam Fore Jr. Wilson County Public Library, which will allow the Wilson County Friends of the Library to show movies.
