Holmes County BOCC focus on roads

“We’ve got young people tearing up these roads and reckless drivers,” said Davis. “Are there signs we can put up so I don’t have to keep calling the Sheriff’s Office? There’s also a turn out there that if you turn that corner you can’t see them and when it’s wet you can’t stop. Someone’s going to get hurt.”

Commissioner Bill Parish added that there are children and adults on four-wheelers causing trouble.

“They are out there on there on their four-wheelers destroying roads,” said Parish. “The Sheriff’s Office needs to be out there before someone gets hurt. It’s a law enforcement issue.”

The board agreed to summit an inquiry with the Holmes County Sheriff’s Office about what could be done to reduce reckless uses of the dirt roads.

Commissioner Bobby Sasnett said that he had been receiving numerous phone calls about mosquitoes becoming an issue and inquiring about spraying for the county.

“During our last meeting we approved of our licensed contractor to begin spraying immediately,” said Chair Monty Merchant. “We’ll need to get up with him to see if there’s been some sort of delay.”

Board approved of the abandonment of Prosser Lane.
