Board approved of finalizing for court generator

County Attorney Jeff Goodman explained to the Board that the Holmes County Clerk of Court would be assuming financial responsibility for the Probation Services, which would take the Board out of the process.

“There are a lot of requirements but most of them don’t apply because this is a public service and the requirements are applied towards private,” said Goodman. “Clerk of Court Kyle Hudson doesn’t need the money from the Board to get it started. So the Clerk of Court has it handled and the Board needs to take no action.”

County Engineer Whitney Nelson from Melvin Engineering explained that there was “a deep need” to repair McCarnley Road and explained that since there is someone who is already mobilized for road work that the cost of patching would cost $4,800, which would exclude mobilization fees.

Board approved of patching McCarnley Road for $4,800 and gave a time frame of within 30 days for the work to get started.

“We don’t know when we’ll be able to get a deal like this again,” said Williams. “Mobilization fees alone could kill you in costs.”

Forest Area Supervisor Donnie Sellers for Florida Forestry Services gave his yearly report to the Board.

“We’ve had fewer fires due to rain and a Fire Readiness at a level 1, which means very unlikely for fires,” said Sellers. “We’re still battling cogongrass. Round-up really works but it needs at least two applications.”
