Williams also informed the Board that he had made a mistake somewhere when bidding out the process of paving and striping County Road 177A.

“I don’t know how it happened, but we didn’t finish striping County Road 177A,” said Williams.

The board approved to put out bids to finish striping CR 117A.

Merchant requested to the Board to find a way to reduce the number of members in the Holmes County Development Commission.

“There’s over 15 members and it’s been expressed by some that these numbers need to be reduced,” said Merchant.

Goodman explained there has to be at least seven regular members to hold quorum and at least that many ex officio members that have voting rights to keep those members “in check.”

Ex officio members are usually applied in Board of Directors, both for profit and non-profit and Boards of Trustees, charitable organizations, membership based, society, etc. and according to the Articles of Incorporation this term usually only applies to past Development Commission presidents and chair members and even though they are past members they still have voting power within the Board.
