BONIFAY — The Holmes County Board of County Commissioners approved the new logo for Holmes County that the Chamber of Commerce presented to the board on Sept. 25.

“The Holmes County Chamber of Commerce approached the Holmes County Board of County Commissioners requesting permission to hold a county logo contest and further requested that the winning logo would be adopted by the county and would be incorporated as the official seal,” said Julia Bullington of the Chamber.

She went on and said from there they approached the Holmes County Development Council and the Holmes County Tourist Development Council and they eventually came up with pledges for the reward of $1,000 to the best representation of the county.

“On April 19 a panel of judges met and selected the winning entry, submitted by Brandon Elderidge of Holmes County,” said Bullington. “I’ve got to personally thank County Attorney Jeff Goodman. I couldn’t have done this without him.”

Commissioner Kenneth Williams said that he was impressed by the selection.

“It wasn’t as easy as you might think,” said Williams. “There were a lot of good ones to choose from.”

The board approved County Grant Writer Bob Jones’ request to apply for a Community Development Block Grant to extend Rum Road for $592,000 and to provide equipment for the Pine Log Fire Department in the amount of $60,000.
