Holmes County commissioners discuss Sasnett’s ‘yard’ once more

BONIFAY — Commissioner Bobby Sasnett once again pressed that he would need his “yard” moved during the regularly scheduled meeting of the Holmes County Board of County Commissioners on Tuesday, Jan. 16.

“We have got to do something about it and we’ve got to do something about it soon,” said Sasnett. “I’ve have to go there often and gas prices are high.”

A “yard” is a central location for each district which is supervised by the commissioner of that district and contains fuel tankards, work equipment, etc. for maintaining that district.

Chairman Monty Merchant motioned that the issue be tabled until they can find a more sensible solution.

“To me it would be more sensible not to move a yard just to have to move it again,” said Merchant. “I know it’s inconvenient right now but it would be bad to move it and then find a more suitable place and have to move it again. I make a motion to renew the current lease for the time being and continue to look for a more suitable solution.”

The Board approved of Merchant’s motion with a vote of 4 to 1, with Sasnett voting “no.”

Merchant continued the discussion of possibilities for the yard.
