“We should be ready for anything that may be a possibility for Holmes County,” said Chairman Monty Merchant.

Thomas also inquired about the loading building located next to the Holmes County Agricultural building.

“Someone is interested in looking at that building but what I need is the warehouse storage area cleaned out,” said Thomas. “It’s rat infested and a huge mess. Could we get some inmates out there and have it cleaned out?”

Board agreed to have the storage area cleaned for a tour.

The board approved of the Courthouse Security Committee installing 30 more security cameras throughout the Holmes County Courthouse, both inside and out, in the amount of $26,619 with a vote of four to one, with Commissioner Bill Parish voting “no.”

“This will also provide us with additional coverage at night meetings as well,” said Country Attorney Jeff Goodman. “Sheriff, courthouse and county employees are aware of it.”

Circuit Judge Christopher Patterson said that it is “not to eliminate the human security element, but to enhance it.”
