BONHAM, Tex. -- Fannin County is set to receive money to restore their courthouse, but now some are unsure about whether the county should accept the money.

Barbara McCutcheon, head of the Steering Committee, says it's time to act because the courthouse is falling apart.

McCutcheon says it's better to get help from the state than to wait until it's too late.

"Our courthouse is in dire straights. We cannot stay in the courthouse the way she is. We will have to do something. We can do it with the state helping us by giving us $6 million, or we can pay for it ourselves," McCutcheon says.

If the plans are accepted, another grant of up to $6 million will help fund the actual restoration.

    I do hope that if restoration is done, that it will be in better Taste, than after the fire restoration years ago. Bonham's Courthouse has been an Eye-sore ever since!

    I think most are unsure that they are willing to pay .10 to .12 increase in property tax rates to pay for this. It would be good if Channel 12 presented all the facts related to this issue, not just the positive spin.
