Holmes County State Housing Initiatives Partnership Administrator Kathy Ahlen informed the board that the governor of Florida agreed to fund the SHIP program in August.

The board agreed to a three-year extended contract with SHIP with the option of canceling with a minimum 60-day notice.

Commissioner Bobby Sasnett informed the board that he was down to two employees on his road and bridge crew and the board approved of creating a temporary, six-month position with job description and to advertise it.

After much discussion the board approved of allowing Caterpillar to fix one of Sasnett’s graders for $12,962.86.

Sasnett explained that it had no breaks and that the turntable needed to be overhauled and that Caterpillar estimated a two-week period to repair it.

“Park it and see if they will lend you a piece of equipment until the work is done,” said Merchant.

Merchant informed the board that he met with the Department of Transportation in regards to the recent project of repairing County Road 2 from County Road 82 to the Walton County Line.
