Holmes County Commissioners discusses policy during special session

Goodman advised that if their employees were “on your clock and on your equipment then you’re liable for a lawsuit.”

The board agreed that county equipment should never be used for personal use and that they should get with their foremen about cracking down on company policies and set strict guidelines, especially in the area of disciplinary action, breaks and use of county equipment.

“We’ll have to up our transponder tracking surveillance to make sure we’ve got it documented on where they’re going with our county equipment and for how long,” said Commissioner Bobby Sasnett.

Goodman said that, at the board’s request, he was setting up a time to have a meeting with representatives from Walton, Jackson, Santa Rosa and Bay Counties in March.

Parish had suggested this at a previous meeting, stating it might be beneficial to the county to “bounce around” ideas with other counties and “see how they run things” to widen their possibilities.

Merchant asked that the board consider if they want to renew their contract with C.W. Roberts or if they want to start putting projects out for bid.

“We still need striping from Highway 81 to the Walton County line,” said Merchant.
