United Way rep visits Holmes County BOCC

“This is a problem where we have had it break down, then we fix it, have it running for a while until we rent it out again and it breaks down again shortly after renting it out,” said Williams.

Parish recommended because it was a larger financial decision then just replacing a simple window air conditioning unit that they should get a professional recommendation before replacing the entire unit.

BOCC approved of The Northwest Florida Regional Planning to continue offering the State Housing Initiatives Partnership program after receiving word that program has received funding for the new year.

BOCC approved Tri County Community Council representative Joel Paul’s request for TCCC to submit a Transportation Service Development Grant.

“The Department of Transportation has a grant available to improve our transportation programs,” said Paul. “For us it has already been approved we just need to show we the approval of the board. We’ll be using it to update our software for better scheduling, mapping, routes, GPS, etc.”

County Engineer Cliff Knauer approached the board to remind them about deadlines for the Florida Boating Improvement Program grant.

“One of our former commissioners, Jim King, was trying to push for a boat ramp at the Chactahachi River in Holmes County on the west end of Highway 90,” said Knauer. “Because it didn’t score high enough we weren’t able to get the grant. First of all we couldn’t get a letter from the DOT to allow access through their right-of-way and second of all everyone who submitted an application and was accepted was fully prepared before hand with survey analyses, etc.”
