BONIFAY — Representatives from the Holmes County Peewee football team were present once again at the Bonifay City Council meeting held on Monday to request approval to build a new storage unit at the Memorial Field in Bonifay.

Noah Bowen and Mike Swartz came before the council during their meeting on Nov. 25 to inform the council that the current storage unit they were using at the Memorial Field for their peewee football team was mobile shed that is rotting, leaking, dilapidated and in need of replacement.

Bowen presented to the council that they were requesting to build an 18-by-25-foot permanent brick structure where the shed is currently located and that they would supply the funds to do so.

After much discussion, City Attorney Lucas Taylor advised that he look further into the matter and said that Bowen and Swartz should present their request before the Holmes County District School Board before proceeding.

Holmes County District School Board approved of allowing the Holmes County Peewee football team to build a new brick storage building at Memorial Field during their regular meeting on Dec. 17.

Bowen informed the board that he had spoken with the city council during the Bonifay City Council’s Nov. 25 meeting and the council had recommended they come before the Holmes County District School Board.

Bowen assured them that being on the city’s property it would belong to the city.
