The public has an opportunity to get another look at a proposal for a new history center.
A presentation about the Heart of the Hills Heritage Center proposed for the A.C. Schreiner Mansion will be offered to county commissioners at their regular meeting Monday morning at the Kerr County Courthouse.
Bill Rector will offer the presentation sometime after 9 a.m. If supporters of the project can raise the money, the A.C. Schreiner Mansion will become a museum dedicated to telling the story of Kerrville’s founding and development
In other business, commissioners are expected to consider a burn ban, consider allowing fireworks for Texas Independence Day, and they may fund new flooring for the historic Union Church building at 101 Travis St., among other matters.
Commissioners also will consider approving a company to perform a survey of county employee salaries. They also will hear reports from various department heads and elected officials, according to their agenda.
During a closed executive session, commissioners are expected to consider modifications to county employee health benefits. In the same session, they also will discuss acquiring property for a new animal shelter and more space for county offices. The identity of the land parcels has not been disclosed to protect the integrity of the county’s negotiations. If commissioners take action on matters discussed in closed session, they will do so in a reconvened session that’s open to the public.
