Eubanks also said that he had a couple lots that needed maintenance, “nothing major,” but requested that it be placed on the special projects list.

Commissioner Kenneth Williams request that they look into putting a window in one of their metal buildings because workers had little or no cell phone or radio reception in the building and it made it difficult for communication on rainy days.

BOCC approved of the Holmes County Public Library request to use excess funds to repair the roof of the library’s annex in the amount of $3,200.

There was also a request that a local patron wanted to build a gazebo for the library using donated money and the Holmes County Public Library requested that an engineer come out to see if that is even feasible.

Parish said that he thought it would be best to set some guidelines for such requests.

“I can understand someone wanting to build something for the community and having their name placed on it, however if we have everyone wanting to build many things this could easily get out of hand,” said Parish. “We just need to set some guidelines. For example, the annex didn’t really match the library aesthetically, though you did you’re best to make it work with what you had; I’m just saying we don’t want a repeat of that if we can avoid it.”

Commissioner David Whitaker also suggested that they keep in mind costs of maintenance.
