Holmes County commissioners talk dirt

The board agreed with West’s request to get with the road foremen to see exactly what the county needs and adjust it with a free spraying to compensate for the $3,000 spent in January.

“The main thing I want is for you to just let us know you aren’t going to be killing any rose bushes, mimosas or cotton fields,” said Williams.

West assured him that their work is precise to kill only what they target and that there’s an extensive insurance policy that would cover any damage done by mistake.

The board approved of signing a 90-day contract with Interstate Commercial Services for janitorial services provided at the Holmes County Court House with a vote of 4 to 1, with Merchant voting “no.”

Williams informed the board that he posted for a heavy equipment operator but had no responses and inquired if he should change the description to a foreman in an effort to save the county money in the long run.

The board agreed to Parish’s suggestion to discuss it further at the special session on Monday with the county attorney present.

The board approved of Commissioner David Whitaker’s request to advertise for a grader operator for one more week in the Panama City News Herald, One Stop Career Center and the Holmes County Times-Advertiser.
