Well, finally! The grand opening of JP3 and the Atascosa County Truck Weigh Station will be on February 7 at 11 a.m. Please know that all citizens are invited. It is your facility. We hope you will be proud of what we have built and you will agree that we are building for the future of Atascosa County. The other great news is that these are the last major construction projects. Starting under the last administration, JP4 and JP1 were moved into new facilities and after I took office JP2 was moved into its new office. JP3 is the last one. While I am happy to have been the County Judge while we have built so many fine improvements, I will also be happy to stop spending the money and try to build our reserves back up.
Of course, routine maintenance will continue as usual on all county buildings. We need to expand our document storage capability and we need to upgrade the Tax Office with bathrooms for the public.
