It took two hours for Grimes County Commissioners to review three architectural proposals for the new county facilities, and the county judge says the only affordable one would only solve our current needs. so it’s back to the drawing board.
Joe Fauth says it would take eight to nine million just to solve the current facilities crunch. And we need to build with the county’s ongoing growth in mind.
The most expensive plan, Fauth tells Navasota News, would cost more than 17 million. He estimates that to build a facility that could take care of the anticipated needs of the county for at least 10 years down the road would cost in the range of 12 to 13 million. He admits he doesn’t know how to pay for that at the moment, but adds the county has several options to consider, but some tough decision will have to be made to make that happen.
So PGAL, the county’s architects, have been instructed to come up with more options. and as soon as they do, you’ll hear about it, here on Navasota News.
