Both Fairfield and Teague city councils met in a joint council meeting Thursday, Oct. 18, at the Tri-County Golf Club. This meeting was designed to open dialog between the two cities regarding the Texas Department of Criminal Justice Department (TDCJ) Boyd Unit and the Interlocal Definitive Agreement (IDA) signed by the two parties.

"We agreed to take part in a group discussion," Fairfield Mayor Kenny Hughes said. "We believe there have been some misunderstandings but we are in the process of litigation and I'm not sure what we can discuss openly."
