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

Williams told the three new commissioners that he would rather not move forward if the majority of the new commissioners felt uneasy about moving forward with purchasing the graters.

“If I were you, just coming on a new board, and there was two knuckleheads from the old Board saying the old Board just agreed to spend half a million dollars on graders without my input I’d tell them I wasn’t in,” said Williams. “So I’m in with whatever you guys decide.”

Commissioner Bobby Sasnett was in agreement with purchasing the new graters.

“Our roads are tore up and we’ve got two graters in my district that are out of commission,” said Sasnett. “Something’s got to be done and done soon.”

Commissioners David Whitaker and Bill Parish weren’t in agreement.

“I’ll tell you now that I’m not comfortable with our current process,” said Whitaker. “We should have someone come in and show us how we can run things more efficiently.”

Parish backed Whitaker, saying that there’s got to be a more efficient way to run the equipment to make them last longer and not have to spend so much time and money repairing or replacing graters.
