Board approved of Director of Holmes County Emergency Management Wanda Stafford’s request to extend the Emergency Operations Center hours from 35 hours per week to 40, with a vote of 4 to 1, with Merchant voting “no.”

Stafford confirmed that demands on the Emergency Operations Center had been increasing and the additional hours would not be of any cost to the county.

“We will continue to do our best to support you all and do the best job that we can,” said Stafford.

Commissioner Bobby Sasnet moved to have a local bus driver’s driveway repaired but it died due to lack of second.

Goodman said there was some room to work if it was private property being used for public purposes and the other commissioners were reluctant because it was private property.

Merchant asked about the ongoing efforts to beautify the courthouse and Board of County Commissioners building.

County Engineer Whitney Nelson from Melvin Engineering said he had submitted a plan that would cost $2,128 that would enlist the help of inmate labor and a local nursery.
