Spears suggested that they needed a more aggressive person to help rent it out and Hougland suggested bringing the matter before the Holmes County Development Commission for help advertising the building.

The council approved of readdressing the possibility of raises in October in the hopes that the building would be rented out by then.

Serigne told the council that she had been approached by a resident inquiring about the possibility of recycle bins being placed in town.

The town agreed to contact Holmes County Recycling about putting out bins and possibly picking up the contents on a regular basis.

“I just wanted to say that we’ve had recycling bens before,” said Peterson. “The problem was that people were also dropping off large trash items like mattresses.”

Resident Wendy Varner approached the council saying she and several others wanted to put together town events for the local people and children.

“We need something for the children,” said Varner. “We want to get local artists together for art shows, bring athletes to talk to schools, hold bake sales, have an ‘American Idol,’ hold a Gospel Sing.”
