Grimes County Commissioners got an update last week on how plans are progressing for the county’s new facilities, slated for construction next to the County Law Enforcement Center.
Precinct 4 Commissioner Gary Husfeld reported meeting with all the county’s department heads to update their needs assessments. He told his colleagues that gives the county several options.
One option, he said was about 34,629 square feet. That’s pretty close to what the original needs assessment were. There were a couple of other five- and ten-year options, too, Husfeld continued, adding that it will be dollars that dictate what our final square footages are.
And once that’s determined, he went on, the county’s path ahead seems pretty clear.
The next step, Husfeld concluded will be to take this information and determine a floor-plan, and then we’ll schedule and review that sometime within the next few weeks.
And once they do, of course, we’ll let you know about it, right here on Navasota Mews.
If everything does goes as planned, Husfeld said he hopes there’ll be a complete set of drawings of the proposed floor plan for the Court to consider within the next six months. That would put the construction bidding process sometime next spring, he continued, which would mean that ground could probably be broken for the county’s new facility sometime next September.
