Parish asked what the concerns with DOT were to prohibit them from allowing the county access to their right-of-way.

Knauer explained it was concerns they had with the wetlands and environmental impact.

“We didn’t have any surveying or impact studies,” said Knauer. “We can get those without any problem it just takes time. So if anyone has any boat ramp, parking lot or restroom issues we’ve got to get on it soon so we can get what we need for this grant.”

Parish asked County Attorney Jeff Goodman what the status was for the Holmes County Comprehension Plan.

Goodman said that the county had been through the painstaking process of updating the Comprehensive Plan to meet legislative requirements and now all that was required was to see if they are still in compliance and if they want to update their Evaluation and Appraisal Report.

Parish also said that there are issues with erosion on North and South Ride.

Knauer said that the previous commissioners had addressed the issue and a plan was created for addressing those issues but the commissioners had chose to decline the plan.
