Holmes County looks to China for possible investments

Commissioner Kenneth Williams requested that the position of Bridge Crew Foreman be advertised extended out of just in-house.

“I don’t want to disregard these who have applied in-house but I’d still like to post it outside,” said Williams.

Goodman said that they were within their union contract to extend to advertising outside of the county pool of employees if those applying were still in their probationary period or if the employer was not comfortable with the qualifications for those applying and strongly advised that Williams inform those applicants why they were not being selected at this time. Williams agreed to do as Goodman advised.

The board approved of appointing Parish as Circuit 14 Community Alliance for Families Representative.

Board approved of signing the six- to eight-year extension agreement for Opportunity Florida’s Broadband Alliance.

“I’ve worked on it with Washington County and I’ve seen it in many other counties,” said Goodman. “It is the key part of a $3 million grant match, which are allowing for in-kind matches by back-dating these leases. There are six to 10 counties that are in this alliance; it is a race to the finish line and the Federal Government is pushing them to finish.”

Goodman said he was “comfortable with it retro dating it for credit.”
