Talks having been going on for about a year now on what to do about Granny's house in Fordyce. It was closed by the owner and the building stands in complete disarray today with neighbors complaining about the mess and there was concern about who took things from the building without permission. No one seems to have answers to many questions and no one has stepped forward to take responsibility. We asked Dallas County Judge Jimmy Jones for an update on cleaning up the property.

Attorney Tom Wynne is working with a committee appointed by Judge Jones and Fordyce Mayor John MacNichol to see that everyone is taken care of. The city and county may share in the cost of cleaning up the asbestos in the building which some have estimated at $25,000.00.
