County prepares to propose a millage

Brown said he’d look into other possible ways of amending the issue to bring before the board.

Brown also agreed to become more actively involved in finding ways to save money on inmate medical expenses.

“If you can save some money then that’s money that can be saved towards your contingency funds,” said Williams. “Look at it some more because I think we’re really close to our goal here.”

Board approved to advertise for a new recycling and litter full time position with the Holmes County Recycling Center, which was made possible by an increase of $20,000 a year through a Solid Waste Grant.

“It’s a good idea,” said Williams. “We get enough calls for litter alone to keep him busy at all times. We’ll also need him to have the qualifications required to supervise inmate labor if he needs assistance.”

Williams added that it might be a good idea to look into finding ways of investigating where the trash is coming from and issuing fines to generate revenue and reduce littering.

In the area of transportation they found they were using more on road materials and having to pull from bridge funds so they agreed to flip the allotted amounts for next year’s budget.
