Congressional Record read at Holmes County BOCC meeting to honor retiring Clerk of Court

“It’s a matter of checks and balances,” said Goodman. “It’d be a shame if the Development Commission and the Board of County Commissioners didn’t come together.”

Sasnett informed the board that he had found a piece of property in Westville to relocate his “yard” to.

A Commissioner’s “yard” is a centralized location in which to refuel that district’s vehicles, house their equipment, etc.

Sasnett had requested to relocate his “yard” to a location closer to where he lives for security purposes.

Parish requested that the board look into a more efficient way to locate the “yards.”

“We incur a lot of expenses relocating these ‘yards,’” said Parish. “There are buildings that need to be moved, tankards of fuel, and so many other expenses that come with moving a yard. I know it’s a common practice that’s been going on for many years, but we’ve got to look into a way of establishing a centralized and permanent location for these ‘yards’ so that we don’t have to continue relocating these ‘yards’ every time we get a new commissioner.”

The next regularly scheduled Board of County Commissioners meeting is set for 9 a.m. on Jan. 8.
