Historic meeting for Bonham City Council


Bonham – Monday night marked the first public meeting held at the recently completed Bonham City Hall, a project that was done without raising taxes.

City officials were able to restructure their finances to take advantage of lower interest rates and bring the new facility online.

Located at 514 Chestnut Street, the building is more than 11,000 square feet, almost double the size of their former workplace, which was shared with the Bonham Police Department. Crews broke ground on the project in January.

The Ridgemont Company of Irving was awarded the project at a bid of $1,081,311.
