BONIFAY — Holmes County Board of County Commissioners called a special session on Friday, March 1 in order to purchase 500 tons of rock to repair county maintained roads after the recent heavy rains and flash floods devastated the roads during the course of the previous week.

BOCC approved to pay Junction City Main for 500 tons of rock at $28 per ton and approved of hiring Wayne Powell to haul the rock for $6.50 per ton.

Commissioner Kenneth Williams said he came in contact with three possible local haulers with one telling him no, the other said he’d get back with him and never did and the last being Powell.

Commissioner Bill Parish inquired about labor, asking if his road crews could work late Friday and some of Friday to help fix the county roads quickly.

“We’ve got roads that are in dire need of repair and soon,” said Parish.

All those present agreed that as long as it stayed within the required procedures that it should be fine to do what is necessary to complete repairs as needed.

While the commissioners were together, Parish asked that they consider a local vender to address the needs of emergency vehicles.
