Chairman Monty Merchant said there is an issue with the spotlights for the courthouse’s flag pole constantly being out at night.

“We need to put a light on it or take it down,” said Merchant.

The board agreed to see if the Holmes County Sheriff’s Office could see about taking it down every night and putting it up every morning.

Commissioner Bill Parish was unanimously chosen to by the other board members to be the auctioneer at the auction of surplus county items to be held at 9 a.m. on Friday, April 12.

“That’s only because everyone one else wants money to do it,” said Merchant.

Merchant also asked about maintaining the landscape around the courthouse and was assured there was a landscape architect on staff to get started.

“It just doesn’t seem to make any sense to pay for the courthouse to be beautified and then let the lawn take it over,” said Merchant.
