Seguin Police Officer Making a Difference

Recently there has been a great story going around local social media about Officer Brandon Smith, an officer with the Seguin Police Department.  Officer Smith was recently dispatched to investigate the burglary of a residence.  One of the occupants of the home was a young boy that was upset because his TV and his XBox system along with the games and accessories was stolen.  Officer Smith decided to help this young boy feel better – by taking his own personal PS3 game system, controllers, and games back to the home of the young man that had been burglarized.  Officer Smith even went so far as purchasing a new game for the young man – to replace one of those stolen.

The family of the residence was grateful and appreciative, but the heartwarming story doesn’t end there.  What this officer did was prove there are good people in the world and that there is always a silver lining to every situation.  This young boy will never forget the generosity bestowed upon him by Officer Smith and will hopefully pay that forward in his own way some day.

This story was discussed on a nationally syndicated radio station on a segment called “Tell Me Something Good”.  It is great to see Seguin portrayed in a positive light and for us all to remember that good things happen every day!

Guadalupe County courthouse update

Guadalupe County employees and elected officials are moving into the newly renovated courthouse on Tuesday!  Guadalupe County Judge Kyle Kutscher was among those moving.  According to Judge Kutscher, the commissioners court, Justice of the Peace Precinct 2, Constable Precinct 2, fire marshal, emergency management coordinator and the IT department are among those departments moving into the courthouse.  He says the courthouse will be the new site for the county’s future commissioner court meetings.

Judge Kutscher gave an update on the renovations by saying there are just punch list items left to finish.  They would like to be settled in by November 18th, with the IT department possibly taking longer to get everything moved, including servers.

According to Judge Kutscher, the renovation to the courthouse was “the most important renovation project the county has ever taken on and probably ever will take on.  I’m just extremely proud that we were able to be a part of it and work on such an important and historic building and property – just a sense of overall pride and honor to be able to move into a building that has so much history and actually be here with commissioners court and other departments to serve the public.”

The renovation schedule took about a year and a half and had a $5 million price tag.  Before the renovations, the building was vacant and all county offices were housed in the Guadalupe County Justice Center.  The grand opening for the public is scheduled for December 5th at 3:00 p.m.
