JOHN McGEE 1 hesitate to tell you that DiStefano because it seems too I didnt give them structural but they have engineers with them that could tell about how much steel would be needed to do It shouldnt increase by 1520 percent and thats still The architect said he needed to get commissioners ap proval to move ahead with the drawings and get approval from the Texas Historic Commission before the skywalk could become part of the building Be sure to tell the Historic Commission that we will improve the courthouse by restoring that side entrance when we remove the Wetz I dont think we will have any trouble getting approval for this because it will not substanclally change anything on the courthouse the architect And Mary administrative assistant to commissioners court has already mdtle

such a building of metal and brick to be built on the jail but It would cost almost without the separate storage garages which are needed for animal grooming Right now that equipment is scattered all over the its out in the elements because we have no place to put Commissioners were concerned that the extension homemaker groups that meet during the day would have trouble with finding that the cooking smells would stay in the building too that the kitchen eventually have to be taken out when the county would need the and at night the security of the building would be a Council to mull
