Some new expansion projects could soon be on the way to the new Brazos County Exposition Center.

Commissioners met today to discuss how they will use the hotel occupancy tax in the near future.

County Judge Randy Sims says they would like to use some of the money to bring national events into the area.

He says 55 percent of the funds generated could be used towards capital projects like a new stall barn and covered arena. The remaining 45 percent could be used for marketing.
