“Whereas Roger H. Brooks has held office in the City of Bonifay for 30 years and it’s recognized for this achievement.

“Now, therefore, be it resolved by the Board of Directors of the Florida League of Cities, Inc. that Roger H. Brooks is commended for your dedication to the city of Bonifay and is hereby recognized as an outstanding public servant in Florida.”

Berrian said she was honored to be there and that the Florida League of Cities would be honoring Brooks on their website, Facebook and Twitter as well as at their headquarters.

“It’s never been about me,” Brooks said. “It’s always about the people.”

Resident Ray Brooks came before the council with concerns about the streets of Bonifay.

Brooks pointed out that due to water leaks there are many roads with broken pavement and indentures.

Mayor Lawrence Cloud explained that the city was aware of every issue he brought up and that these issues were because of their previous contractor and the city was getting in contact with the contractor to correct their mistakes. The only drawback would be if the contractor refused to correct the damage because the one-year warrantee is up.
