“I don’t know how much of a problem we’re having with these beavers but if killing them helps then we should see about it,” said Sasnett.

County employee Eddie Whitehurst verified that the beavers in Holmes County are an issue and one that the county should take note of because they’ve had the job of cleaning out the beaver dams but soon their work crew will be reduced.

Commissioner Kenneth Williams also concurred that the beavers are an issue in Holmes County.

“I’ve had roads washed out because of beaver dams,” said Williams.

Commissioner Bill Parish suggested going out to bid if they find that this service is beneficial to the county.

“If it’s beneficial for the county I’m all for it,” said Sasnett. “I’ll visit these areas to see just how bad these beavers are.”

Whitehurst brought before the BOCC an estimate to cover the new fuel tankards at Districts 3 and 4 Road Yard.
