A host of county and local officials were on hand last week as a new county annex was opened on CR 58 in Manvel. The building is just west of SH 288 and comprises 13,238 square feet and cost $2.44 million. The Precinct 4 Justice of the Peace court will occupy the building full time and will share the structure with Adult Probation. The Commissioner for Precinct 4, David Linder, will maintain a satellite office at the building as well. Linder said the buildings establishment is a “testament to what Brazoria County is and how much we care about our growth and being able to serve the citizens.”
Former Precinct 4 commissioner Larry Stanley told the group that the building had been planned for years and that there were challenges in getting it done. “Finally we have a presence here on this end of Precinct 4. About 1/2 the people in Precinct 4 live north of SH 6. So we will be able to provide them with services that they deserve without having to drive down to the Brazoria area,” he said.
