BONIFAY - The City of Bonifay is working to establish a code enforcement board to help put more teeth into the local code ordinances. City Attorney Michelle Jordan was tasked with drafting an amendment to the current ordinance to include setting up the new board when the City Council met in regular session Monday.
Council members also accepted bids for stadium seating railing and a new security system to be installed at Memorial Field. Modern Tech Squad, LLC of Bonifay was the sole bidder for the security system at $3,760. Carl Gillman of Ponce de Leon was the sole bidder for the stadium seating railing at $7,435. Both projects will be funded through the city's legislative grant.

The city also approved a request from The Bonifay National Guard to waive impact fees on a new irrigation system that is being installed at the armory.
Several local residents were also on hand at the meeting to bid farewell to Bonifay Mayor Richard Woodham whose term ends this month.
