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

The commissioners also approved of advertising and holding a public hearing to continue the 1 percent Small County Surtax.

In other business, the board approved of their new Paid Time Off Policy, which is a universal policy stating that those in violation of abusing their PTO will be issued a warning on their first offense, receive a week off without pay for their second offense and face possible termination upon the third offence within a 12 month period.

“I’ve included leniency for health and other emergency related situations,” said Goodman.

Parish requested the purchase of two culverts, one for $2,000 and another to temporarily replace a bridge for $4,000.

“It’s just a possible temporary fix until other arrangements can be made,” said Parish.

Parish added that the road department was still receiving calls for culvert permits.

“We need to let everyone know if there’s any issue with a road that they should call our main office,” said Parish. “If there’s any issue to do with a road residents should call 547-1119.”
