Bush asked how Holmes County handled human resources without having an HR director. “It’s a team effort,” Goodman said. “But you are talking apples and oranges here. Washington County is a whole other thing than Holmes County.”

Goodman said Washington County had as many public record requests in a week as Holmes County received in a year.

“It’s just the same two or three people doing that,” Bush said.

“Yes, but we still have to reply to them,” Goodman said.

Abbott was told the county spends $579 each month on health insurance for each of the county’s 160 employees.

“What if we cut that back to $400 and had the employees pay the $179?” Abbott asked.

“Our employees don’t make that much,” Bush said.
