Board approved of building a Mosquito Control Building to house the mosquito spray truck and chemicals at the Recycling Center for the amount of $12,595, which will come out Mosquito Control’s budget.

Board approved of extending their contracts with Melvin Engineering and Preble Rish for another year.

Chair Monty Merchant said that he spoke with the Department of Transportation and it looks as though they might have additional funds to help widen County Road 2 from County Road 82 to the Walton County Line, however it would help if the Board made it a top priority.

“This doesn’t devalue the importance of the repairs needed for Thomas Drive and Duncan Road, it just pushes it up so that the project can be started on this year,” said Merchant. “Thomas Drive and Duncan Road still won’t be eligible for work until 2017.”

Board approved of placing County Road 2 at the top of their priority list.

Board approved of Holmes County Extension Director Shep Eubanks’ recommendation to hire Wendy Smith as the new Extension Office Secretary.

“Out of 22 applicants and eight interviews she was the best choice,” said Eubanks. “She has over 17 years of experience, her test scores were the highest and she had outstanding references.”
