BONIFAY — After more than a year after applying the Holmes County Board of County Commissioners’ application for a $29,000 grant-funded generator for the Holmes County Court House was accepted and Board approved to pay the matching funds of $5,368.75 during their Sept. 24 meeting.

During the Board’s April 24, 2012 meeting Commissioner Kenneth Williams informed the Board that that they had applied for a grant towards a generator for the Court House.

“It’s a big enough generator to provide for the entire Court House no problem,” said Williams. “The match is between $2,000 and $4,000 for a $29,000 generator with the possibility for an In-Kind match for labor. We needed to apply for the grant that day, so it seemed like a no-brainer.”

The Board agreed with Williams.

“We’ll still have to do some work to do to accept the grant,” said Chair Monty Merchant. “Speaking of generators, we have multiple generators throughout the county and we’ve even had one go down not too long ago. We should appoint someone to check on those generators on a regular basis and report any abnormalities if there should be any found.”

Board agreed to allow Shop Director Roger Williams perform this task.

Board approved of Jerry Dixon as the newest member of the Holmes County Development Commission Board and agreed for all board members to bring names of potential candidate for the two open members-at-large positions still open.
