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

Published: Friday, January 11, 2013 at 12:58 PM.

“We do need to act rather quickly,” said Merchant. “It is a good ways away from Sasnett.”

Several possibilities discussed were District 1 and 2 sharing yards and possibly expanding it to include a pit.

“There is quite a bit to consider,” said Commissioner Bill Parish. “Like high traffic zones, flood zones and accessibility. We could possibly get District 1 or 2 with an engineer to look at possible property so that when we move we move swiftly and efficiently.”

They agreed that if a workshop were necessary to work out just this issue then one would be established.

Shay McCormick with Holmes County EMS was present to explain the Med 8 Repeater’s return to Holmes County responsibility.

McCormick explained that Med 8 was a state required channel used statewide by medical facilities and organizations to communicate with each other.

“Fortunately Doctors Memorial Hospital has had responsibility and now they are requesting that the county assume the responsibility,” said McCormick.
