TYLER, Texas (KLTV) - Smith County Judge Nathaniel Moran says he intends to ask commissioners this summer to put a new courthouse up for a vote on the November ballot.

The announcement was made in the State of the County address Tuesday.

This comes after the plan was delayed by COVID-19 and then the county’s prioritization of road and bridge improvements.

If approved by voters, the new courthouse would replace the county’s current 1955 courthouse.
