Wichita Co. firing range closer to completion

WICHITA COUNTY, TX (KAUZ) -

Weather delays have slowed down work on the new Wichita County firing range.

But commissioners continue to move forward as action was taken on Monday for more work to be done.

Commissioners passed agenda items to begin work on the underpinning or strengthening the foundation and to purchase items for flooring materials.

The county will spend around $9,000 on that work. Precinct 2 Commissioner, Lee Harvey, said power is now up and running at the facility as well.

Judge Woody Gossom is happy about the progress but believes they would be further along if it was not for a range of different delays.

"Some of the steps in trying to get decisions made because of our process has had to go back through the court," Judge Gossom said. "That creates a delay, even though we meet fairly often."

Trinity Hughes will now be coming back to the construction site and testing everything with the power supply.

However they will be charging the county $2,000 to come back, something Commissioner Harvey said is disappointing.

Judge Gossom said that Trinity Hughes told them there would be additional charges if they left the site and had to come back.

Commissioners are still hoping the project is complete by the end of the summer.

Judge Gossom said they are continuing to learn from some of the issues they have faced in hopes of avoiding the same problems in future projects.
