“Mr. Speaker, on behalf of the United States Congress, I thank Cody Taylor for his dedication to our community, and I congratulate him on his retirement. My wife, Vicki and I wish him and his family all the best.”

Resident Zack Taylor spoke about his father and thanked everyone for their support.

“I wanted to thank all the citizens of Holmes County for their support of my father and making this feel like home,” said Zack. “I also want to thank Holmes County for recognizing my father and his service.”

In other business, the board approved of a Bond Refunding Resolution to refinance their 30-year loan with First Federal down to 17-year loan at a 2.95-fixed interest rate, saving the county over $900,000.

“This year alone you’ll be saving $29,000,” said County Financial Consultant Jim Gollahon. “This is a savings that you’ll experience every year, totaling a savings of over $900,000.”

This was a loan that was used to build the work camp and Holmes County Public Library.

Resident Renee Davis came before the council on behalf of the recipient of the long time State Housing Initiatives Partnership program project that had faced delays for almost three years.
