“As I understand it, the man owns the land on both sides of the road and that it dead ends in the middle of his property,” said Commissioner Kenneth Williams.

Holmes County IFAS Extension Director Shep Eubanks told the board that the Florida Broadband Alliance was interested in the county participating in the expansion of broadband into Holmes County, however there wasn’t much time left before grant proposal had to be turned in.

Board agreed that a representative of the Florida Broadband Alliance should be present to make the request and answer any questions the board might have before they could make a decision.

“Poor planning on their part doesn’t make an emergency on mine,” said Williams.

Eubanks also informed the board that the air conditioning unit is still out at the Holmes County Agricultural Center and that issues have surfaced with the other air conditioning unit but it may just need Freon.

Board approved of paying the low bid of $5,000 to repair the air conditioner unit’s compressor and for Freon for the other unit.

Gritney Fire Department Chief Clifton Crews came before the board about vandalism to the fire station.
