Goliad Auditorium is Falling Apart But Could See Upgrades

The Goliad Memorial Auditorium was built in the 1930’s to celebrate Texas Independence but almost 100 years later it’s starting to show signs of wear and tear. Heavy rains have damaged the roof and the floors and now the building needs a $339,000 improvement. Dances and banquets are on the line up for the auditorium which helps make money but not enough. There is a interlocal agreement between Goliad County and the City of Goliad to operate the building and they will both put money towards a new metal roof on the building. The county will use tax dollars that they have had budgeted for the last 2 years. One of the plans the city has to repair the building will be to use a certificate of obligation from 2006 that wasn’t used in full.
