Fannin County, Texas Ė At the regular meeting of Fannin County Commissionerís Court, the meeting opened with an invocation delivered by David Woodson.  A quorum was established with all members present.

In Public Forum this week, Fannin County Judge Spanky Carter read an announcement from Steve Filipowicz, Executive Director of Bonham Economic Development Corporation, that there will be a county meeting of schools to discuss the Freeport exemption.  This meeting will be hosted by Dr. Beaty, Bonham ISD Superintendent. This will be a joint city and county schoolís governing boards workshop. The Bedco board is also invited. This workshop will be on Thursday, September 28, from 5:30 p.m. to 7:15 p.m. at the Bailey Inglish early childhood center.

Agenda item number four was to approve minutes from September 5, 2017.

Item number five was regarding the purchase of a Zebra label printer for civil case files at a cost not to exceed $400.00. This item was approved and will be funded through the County Clerk Technology Fund.

Agenda item number six was to approve the purchase of a software license and service agreement with KnowInk at a cost of $250.00 and an annual Central Command license fee of $1000.00 hereafter. Ms. Biggar further explained that they would be purchasing IPads that would work with this software to give real time access to who has voted.

The next agenda item awarded the Bank Depository bid to Legend bank. The cost would be $800.00 per month, and the only change to last yearís contract would be an increase of one percent increase to six percent cost if the county borrowed money from them.

Agenda item eleven dealt a salary adjustment for the court assistant at the Justice of the Peace Precinct #3. The court granted an additional three percent raise on October 1, above the annual three percent raise given. The court felt this would correct an error in salaries.
