Commissioner Bobby Sasnett asked if FEMA funds would help in acquiring a new grader for his district and a new loader for Williams’.

Stafford said she was sure that it would help lease the equipment but she would have to look further into the details to see how much it can help.

County Attorney David Whitaker informed the board that the recent Community Development Block Grant applied for wasn’t going to help North and South Ride and made a motion to put in an application for Idle Wood Court, Idle Wood Drive and Pine View Drive. The vote passed with a vote of four to one with Chair Monty Merchant voting “no.”

Board approved of Goodman’s recommendation for a four-man committee to review the applications for County Coordinator/Public Works Director.

“We want to be sure that whoever we choose is at least educated in the fields we need him in,” said Goodman. “We’ve got some applicants and I believe that with this group we can have something back by the next meeting.”

Board approved of Judy Powell and Sheena Hoagland as the newest members at large for the Holmes County Development Commission.

During their Sept. 24 meeting the Board approved of the Holmes County Correctional Institution of using the Holmes County Fair Grounds for their regular training sessions on Nov. 14, however with the electricity and utilities were turned off due to the Fair Board dissolving.
