BONHAM, Texas (KTEN) — Fannin County Commissioners know that street maintenance is one of the top priorities for taxpayers.

So they are focused on finding solutions about how to best maintain the county's roads.

"There needs to be prioritization, and people need to consciously plan what they are going to do," said Fannin County Judge Newt Cunningham.

Currently, 22 percent of the county budget goes to the road and bridge fund.

"We have independent commissioner precincts, with each precinct commissioner being responsible for the roads in his area," Cunningham said.

The Commissioners Court is working on multiple ideas to improve maintenance county wide.

"Some people want to maintain the precinct system; others want to go to a unitary system where we have a road engineer that is responsible for all the roads in the county," Cunningham said. "We need to operate our county road maintenance as though it was a business; trying to have a plan going forward."
