Commissioners take Holmes County “out of the rock-selling business”

Published: Thursday, April 4, 2013 at 10:02 AM.

Merchant disagreed with the decision.

“I know we’re not in the business of hauling rock but it’s not like dirt,” said Merchant. “It’s not like we’re hauling it every day.”

The board also approved of the resignation of Holmes County Development Chair Bud Riviere.

The commissioners also approved of abandonment resolution for the Colletti Property.

After a public hearing, the road abandonment was tabled after local resident Tom Smith said that abandoning the road would mean cutting off access to his property.

“This is the first I’ve heard of this,” said Goodman. “Let me look into the matter and bring it before the board at the next meeting. We won’t need to hold another public hearing and if this is cleared up then we’ll just need to publish after adopting it and after 30 days it will be made effective.”

This issue had been brought before by resident Jeffery Johnson at the board’s Jan. 16 meeting, requesting to properly vacate a street that dead-ends next to a piece of property he purchased recently from Colletti.
