United Way rep visits Holmes County BOCC

“Because of the newer and bigger fuel tankards we’re needing something bigger to cover them from the weather,” said Whitehurst. “We were using the old awning from the Bank of Bonifay’s old drive-thru but now we’re needing something more. I request that we table this matter because the present quote is for $12,484 and I think we can get it done for well less then a fraction of that price.”

BOCC agreed to table the matter until Whitehurst found a cheaper means of covering the tankards.

BOCC approved of accepting two vehicles handed down from the Tri County Community Council for the Holmes County Public Library and the road department.

“We’ve never had a vehicle for the library,” said Susan Harris from the HCPL. “We’ve been striving for a vehicle to take to the rural areas. We want to provide what services we have in the library, such as the Internet, to those areas who can’t afford to make it to the library.”

Merchant asked her if she had the funds in her budget to maintain the vehicle.

“Some how we’ll make it work to where we can do what we got to do,” said Harris. “It will be a most needed service to the people in our community.”

BOCC approved of getting an assessment and a recommendation for what should be done with faulty air conditioning unit at the Holmes County Agricultural building.
