Commissioners consider relocation of courts-at-law

A planned renovation of three county buildings in downtown Seguin is expected to lead to widespread shuffling of office space, and commissioners said they plan to make a decision about exactly what offices will go where by the end of the month.
Architect Lindsay Thorn told the commissioners the current proposed layout is designed to ensure the offices have room to expand as the county grows for the next 25 years.
County Judge Mike Wiggins said his plan is to complete a renovation of the courthouse, the Economy Furniture building and the County Annex in the next four to five years, for $15 million and no tax increase.
“It is a courthouse and it will remain a courthouse if I have anything to say about it, not a hodgepodge of offices,” Wiggins said.
