  17. Fannin County Commissioners approve lease for Lake Fannin, issue bonds for courthouse restorationRead the original story w/Photo

    Nov 13, 2018 | North Texas e-News

While this development at Lake Fannin is the only first step in Fannin County Judge Spanky Carter's stated goal of returning all 2,200 acres of the Lake Fannin complex to the citizens of Fannin County, it marks significant progress because this lease allows the Lake Fannin Volunteers to, first of all, remove trees and shrubs growing on the dam, which would eventually compromise the earthen structure.
