Holly Holt with the Holmes County Health Department requested assistance in getting a generator for the health department.

“If there’s a disaster we have immunizations that need to stay refrigerated; immunizations that cost a lot of money and are important to the health and well being of our residents,” said Holt. “It would be good to have a back-up generator just incase the power goes out so we don’t loose those immunizations or have to go through a hefty ordeal to make sure they remain cool.”

Board agreed to look into the matter.

Herman Knowles, Jr. came before the Board because of continual potholes in Ammons Road.

“I’ve been there for almost 10 years and that road just continues to deteriorate,” said Knowles. “The city has done their best to patch those holes, but since it is down hill and there’s heavy traffic, it doesn’t take long for those patches to ware out.”

Board agreed to allow one of their engineers to look at possible solutions.

Commissioner David Whitaker informed the Board that there are several people who have retired and suggested combining the two positions into one Public Works Supervisor.
