City of Teague researches agreement with Fairfield

*The headline "Teague to end 30-year agreeement with Fairfield" in this week's Recorder was misleading. It should have read "City of Teague researches agreement with Fairfield."

Teague's Board of Alderman received information on April 16 from Teague City Administrator Theresa Prasil that City Attorney Linda Sjogren, attorney for Bojorquez Law Firm in Austin, wants to address the council to present them with a new Interlocal Definitive Agreement for Teague to step out of a new bond that the City of Fairfield wants to take out.
