Fannin County cuts down debt

By  | 

BONHAM, TX-- Fannin County is only $1.3 million away from being debt free.

Judge Spanky Carter said the commissioners voted, Monday, to pay $310,000 towards the old Fannin County jail debt.

Last year the county leased the facility on County Road 4200 and are using the money to pay off the remaining balance. The county pays once a year and was suppose to be finished paying the debt in 2018 or they will be finished in at least 2017.

Carter said this is the only debt the county has. He would like to see the county debt free by 2016.
