Council approved of Meme & Pa’s request to close their portion of Depot Street to hold their annual Bike-A-Thon to raise money for St. Jude’s Children.

Local resident and co-owner of Brumicon Scott Watkins came before the council to request support from the city for his new website.

“This website was built for the benefit of the city of Bonifay’s economic endeavors,” said Watkins. “There are a lot of resources available online and we’ve provided a free website to help people look for jobs, employers to find employees, classifieds and all this is free to the public.”

Watkins said he had the endorsement of Goodwill Industries, committing to post all their links to current seeking employers and employees through the site as well as the Holmes County Public Library, which provided a link to their website through their own.

“Things like Craigslist and Monster doesn’t really work for this area because it only benefits for places like Panama City or Dothan,” said Watkins. “We’ve developed a site where you can get all that in one location and it’s absolutely free. There is no charge to the city and all we ask is that we get your endorsement for support and add a link to our site through your website.”

City Attorney Lucas Taylor said he would look into it for the city, but he didn’t see any reason restricting the city from endorsing their website through their own.
