Navarro County Commissioners resumed a budget workshop at 1 p.m. Monday, meeting with Susan Gamage of the Texas Historical Commission and Karalei Nunn of 1113 Architects to discuss the upcoming courthouse restoration program.
Nunn and Gamage were in town going over plans for the temporary location of the county offices, and addressed several questions from commissioners about the mechanics of moving forward with the restoration, and how changes could be made to existing plans if needed.
Contingency plans were also discussed, to cover unforeseen issues that may come up. The county’s restoration plan includes over $900,000 in contingency funds in the $9.1 million project, ample, said Gamage, for most anything that might come up during the work.
No date has been set for the beginning of the work, nor has a contract been signed for any temporary location for county offices.
Commissioners are expected to meet next at 10 a.m. Monday, Aug. 27.
