Holmes County EOC updates commissioners on severe weather

Published: Thursday, February 28, 2013 at 02:09 PM.

BOCC approved of the final auction list of surplus county items and for the auction to be held at 9 a.m. on April 12.

BOCC also approved of EMS Director Greg Barton’s request to purchase a cardiac monitor with FEMA money, which was already previously budgeted for purchase.

Holmes County Extension Director Shep Eubanks was present with quotes for the recent assessment of the air conditioning unit at the Holmes County Agricultural Center.

Eubanks said that the quote was around $45,000 to replace the system and $5,000 to try to save the compressor, however the engineer said that it would be useless to replace the compressor.

Commissioner Bobby Sasnett suggested that they look into finding more quotes.

“We’ve spent a lot of money up-keeping these air conditioning units,” said Commissioner Bill Parish. “We need to insure that the lease agreement insures sufficient income to maintain good, running equipment.”

BOCC agreed to look into getting a couple more quotes before taking action.
