Commissioners discuss a variety of topics

“We’re starting a precedent here,” Commissioner Joel Pate warned.

“For the record, I have not asked for a pay increase,” Corbin said. “I am just happy to be able to do what I can for the employees.”

County Attorney Jeff Goodman advised the board that in Holmes County, the policy states that if an employee is working in a higher position than his own in a temporary capacity for more than 10 days, then the employee gets paid at that higher rate of pay.

“There’s nothing in our policies about that,” Commissioner Lynn Gothard said.

“That’s something we really should fix,” Bush added. The commissioners then voted unanimously to grant Corbin the temporary pay increase.

County Extension Director Julie Dillard presented Washington County’s new agricultural extension agent Mark Maudlin to the commissioners on Thursday. The salaries of extension office personnel are split between the state and the county, so Dillard submitted Maudlin’s employment to the board for approval.

“He’s an excellent candidate, and he already lives in Chipley,” Dillard said of Maudlin. “He used to be the Ag teacher at Graceville.”
