Fannin County Judge Spanky Carter says he's “100 percent confident” that the county will not have to take over operations after Florida-based GEO Group walks away from the Fannin County Jail management contract in June.

GEO announced it would be terminating the contract, including 121 jobs at the facility, earlier this month. That's a full year and a quarter before the contract actually expires, next September.

Until at least October of 2020, the only work inside the Fannin County Courthouse building in Bonham’s downtown square will be of the restoration kind. The county is set to get to work before year’s end on the $17 million project to restore the 128-year-old courthouse to its former glory.

Joe Strong, Fannin County Commissioner for Precinct 4, died on Wednesday.

BONHAM - The Bonham Fire Department will continue to serve the emergency medical service needs of Fannin County citizens after striking a three year deal.
