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

“It’s been eight years of many trials and in the words of Robert Schuler ‘Tough times don’t last but tough people do,’” said Morales. “Thank you for the support Holmes County has shown to Ben’s Place Animal Rescue. I graciously request that the County provide funding that we, the community, can make happen one house at a time.”

Merchant said that the Board appreciated Morales’ proposal and the Board would review and consider it.

“We have acknowledged that we are in need of an animal rescue facility in Holmes County,” said Merchant. “We’ve got three new commissioners and an opportunity for three fresh eyes to review your request. Give us time to review and consider; thank you.”

Whitaker brought a request from the airport before the Board.

“A couple of months ago they requested that we come and trim along their fence next to the road, now they are requesting that we go on the inside of the fence and do the same,” said Whitaker. “I was seeking council on the matter.”

Merchant said he saw nothing wrong with it since the airport was a “quasi-governmental organization” and not private property.

Whitaker also said that the State’s trailer’s hubs needed replacing and they were requesting that the County pay for them.
