County selects tentative millage rate

Board approved of the Holmes District School Board’s requested resolution stating to the Florida Department of Education that the county confirms that the Holmes County Fair Ground property would be available for negotiations if the funds were acquired.

“This doesn’t bind us into any agreement,” explained Goodman. “It just states we’re just willing to negotiate if they should be approved of funding.”

Goodman informed the Board that he went with their request to maintain a multi-franchise agreement with the local garbage collection providers and that he had rewritten the current agreement to include protection for the county.

“The fees remain at $500, however I’ve added the requirements of insurance,” said Goodman. “It also has an indemnification clause. It’s in efforts to try to protect the Board’s interest.”

Board agreed to review the document and bring it before the special session.

Board also agreed to bring together names for a committee to review and “narrow down” applications for the County Coordinator/Public Works Director to the special session since the applications deadline is Aug. 7.

Diane Little and Carroll Harrell of the Holmes County Health Department came before the Board to announce the one-year anniversary of the Holmes County Health Clinic.
